How many steps difference?
Jan 31, 2009

Has anybody ever measured off how many steps you have to step forward to make a 50mm focal length equivalent to an 85mm focal length on a crop sensor camera?

I ask because I'm flirting with ditching my Tamron 28-75 and my Canon 17-85 and getting an ef-s 17-50 2.8.
Thanks.
