Re: No such thing...

Really? This what I was trying to determine with my original question: if a point and shoot camera has a lens of say 28-110mm focal lengths, are you saying that the fov for this lens is exactly the same as the same lens on a full frame digital camera? I don't think so, but I am really to re-visit the subject. It has been my understanding that, on the Point & Shoot, the 28mm end of this example lens would yield the same fov as a 140mm lens on a full frame camera. (Assuming a crop factor of '5', which most Point & Shoots yield.) Help me out here.
