If I am not mistaken the PL25 is a 50mm based on 35mm equivalence, effectively making the Leica 50mm a 100mm when used on m4/3.


No sources, just math. The Leica 50mm is a full frame lens. Use it on the M43 crop sensor and the M43 camera will shoot it like it's a 100mm lens.

Read this this morning without coffee.... i promised myself I wouldn't do that anymore.  Anyways, I interpreted "35m equivalence" as a 35mm lens.  I thought you were talking about the lens construction or something being based on a 35mm lens rather than a 50mm.... you know what, nevermind. lol
