For example. Every DX lens can be used exactly for the focal length it is labeled on DX and many FX cameras. The manual that goes with the lens explains the output results.

A DX 35mm lens can not, and will not ever be able to take a picture at the same zoom length as a FX lens on a full frame camera set at 35mm, no?

Not true at all.  A 35mm DX lens can be mounted on a FX camera and the resulting picture will indeed be at the same focal length as the 35mm FX version of the lens...but cropped. No false labeling going on. You are simply wanting labeling on DX to include "Effective FOV of FF when mounted on DX" . That makes no real practical sense.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
