How so: in equivalence terms, the Oly 12-40/f2.8 becomes 24-80/f5.6 versus the Sony 24-70/f4.0?

Hi Henry,

I understand how the Oly 12-40mm is equivalent to 24-80mm in 35mm terms because of the 2x crop factor of the micro 4/3 sensor. But AFAIK, the aperture remains the same.

Aperture is the same.

Think of it this way:

A fat lady and a thin supermodel are laying on the beach. Who will get sun burnt faster? Answer: both will burn/tan the same despite the fat lady having 4x the skin area. This is because they both have the same exposure. Anyway, Four Thirds is the hot supermodel.

F/2.8 is the same for a Nikon 1, an RX100, the E-M1 and the A7.

Please re-read. No one is stating anything different.

The discussion was wrt/ different noise level, and how exposure compensation can be used to match that.

f/2.8 = f/2.8 = f/2.8 across formats - same exposure. WE AGREE. You see? BUT THE NOISE LEVELS ARE NOT THE SAME.

If you understand sensor noise and equivalence, you begin to understand the discussions. Please re-read.
