“Full Frame Equivalence” and Why It Doesn’t Matter (Admiringlight)

Share

Angle_of_view

How many times did we read these endless Full Frame vs Micro Four Thirds equivalence discussions? And I am sure they will come back again and again and again. But next time we may all be more prepared when discussing about it thanks to the great article posted by Jordan Steele on Admiringlight (Click here): “I’ve heard many times “Yeah, your 75mm f/1.8 is crap – it’s like a 150mm f/3.6.”  No, it’s not, it’s a 75mm lens with an f/1.8 aperture and a field of view that is the same as a 150mm lens on full frame.

It’s a must read! Thanks Jordan!
