And no it's no more a fact that it is a 150mm 3.5 than to say it's a 150mm 1.8

Now give up this equivalency war already. No one is convinced by it and no matter how many posts you make people will still not be convinced by it. Not because of lack of intelligence. But because of the lack of a compelling argument. Like what's running in this thread and multiple others.

In my opinion, one of the problems are that people use "equivalent" as short hand. If we write: "The Olympus 75 mm/1.8 has a field of view similar to a 150 mm lens on a 135 format sized sensor and a entrance pupil of 42 mm which would give it a focal ratio (or f-stop) of 3.6 on a 150 mm lens." I think it would be clearer what is meant.
