Don't know how many times I've had a Canikony user ask me what the crop factor of my FourThirds camera is, when the lens attached is designed for the Four Thirds mount, so no cropping is taking place.

I think I've seen at least one Olympus four-thirds lens actually marked with both the actual focal length, and also having in large letters the 35mm equivalent focal length displayed on the side too.

When manufacturers do things wrongly, its difficult to expect people to not be follow their lead.
