Honestly I was just attempting to answer the question posed by the original poster.

You can disagree about my choice of words (and I'll admit that they were probably particularly poorly chosen) or the concepts or even what colour the sky is, but none of it really helps answer the question.

At the end of the day, a 300mm equivalent lens makes something appear 6x closer than a 50mm equivalent lens and, by convention if not by reality, a 50mm equivalent lens give a pretty close image to what we experience in our day to day life.
