F-stop equivalent question
7 months ago

I really hope my question makes sense....I am currently using an LX5 and hoping a GX7 is in my not too distant future.  I've been doing a lot of reading about available lenses - a whole new world for me. I realized that 24mm/f2.0 on a point and shoot lens has to be completely different from the same focal length/f-stop on other camera systems. I found a chart online showing the equivalent values between FF dslrs, dslrs, and micro 4/3 lenses, i.e., FF dslr 28mm/f2.8 = m4/3 14mm/1.4 (if the author is correct). Can anyone give me some idea as to how my p&s 24mm/f2.0 values compare to a m4/3 lens? Ballpark is fine....

Thank you,

Cheryl
