Since DSLR sensors come in different sizes, there is no consistent reference except 35mm. The 7D and other Canon APS-C sensors cameras have a crop factor of 1.6. Nikon's have a crop factor of 1.5. Your Tamron 17-50mm is in 35mm equivalent, not the Canon 7D equivalent.

Isn't that what I said?

Yes and it's still wrong. The Tamron 17-50 is not labeled in 35mm eq, it's labeled with the actual focal length.

The way you worded that will just confuse beginners even more than they already are.
