Crop factor
May 5, 2012

OK..let me see if a understand this. My Olympus E620 has a "crop factor" of 2x and I have a 70-300 lens and on the outside of the lens is stamped 140- 600 equivalent on a 35mm camera. Now if I understand..this does not mean that this lens has a 600mm focal point but is the equivalent of a 600 cropped lens...right? So I am still viewing my subject with a 300mm focal point and not a 600mm. So to say that a 300mm on a 4/3 format is still a 300 view of the I right or do I need more coaching?
