Andy,

Our entire photo community would benefit from a definitive article prepared by the DPR staff on m4/3 versus 35mm equivalence, dof, sensor size, etc, etc.

They wrote before that they follow the manufacturers' designations. I agree with them that for a product-oriented site it is best to stay consistent with the manufacturers designations.

The manufacturers label all interchangeable lenses with actual parameters, not equivalent. Sometimes they will give FL equivalence on the product web site, but I have never seen equivalent aperture or ISO. I expect that dpreview will not promote equivalent aperture or ISO designations either.
