You better calm down. Why bother?

This forum should return to more useful things to discuss than this.

I am totally fine if the 135mm is referenced to as FF.

Please for the love of God. I am so sick and tired of hearing people refer to 135-format as "FF" or "full-frame" etc. It's so much BS.

135-format is in fact the ONLY format of camera that has crop-sensor modes. The Nikon FX cameras have a "crop mode" where they shoot at a reduced resolution for faster speeds, or when a smaller-format lens like DX is attached. THAT'S A CROP SENSOR FOLKS. THE SENSOR CROPS.

Meanwhile Four Thirds is a specifically full-frame format . All the lenses made for Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds are full-frame relative to the Four Thirds sensors that they were designed for.

So please... never again say "FF" referring to 135 format. EVER! It's just misleading and wrong.
