    "As for" vs. "as to"

    Hello!


    As for your question...

    vs.

    As to your question...


    Is it just a matter of choice, or is there any actual difference between these two phrases?

    Is the range of usage the same?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: "As for" vs. "as to"

    If I were going to criticise or dismiss the question, I'd be more likely to use 'as for'.
