From the intro:

With a focal length of 560mm (840mm equivalent in the 24x36 mm format),

Huh?

560mm when used on APS-C is equivilent FOV of an 840mm lens that is used on FF.

I understood it to say 560mm on a apsc camera equates to an 840mm lens on FF camera.

The FOV does equate.

But, but, isn't it the other way around - 560mm on a FF equates to an 840mm field of view on an APSC camera?
