Of course a DX 35mm is an actual 35mm, but that isn't practical or useful information at all.

It is...it's a standard and you can take a ruler to the lens to confirm. It's a real measurable specification and design element. All I need to know is the focal length.  I already know how that relates to sensor size. I don't need a label for that.

Who cares what the focal length is if the picture that it takes is no where near that?

We all do (mostly). Focal length is the standard...sensor size is not. You want everything labeled based on a Full Frame Sensor. That has little practical value.

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)
