Well, a lot of m4/3 users are misinformed at times too.

I've seen many m4/3 users state something along the lines of "a 20mm on m4/3 is the same as 40mm on FF" - except, this isn't completely true.

The FOV - due to the crop factor - THAT is the factor that is the double equivalent. But the actual magnification factor isn't different. And this is relevant, btw... because where one stands (distance, relative to the subject) can be dictated as much by crop needs as by "how close/far can I get to the subject".

So, while some instructors may need to get their facts right... so do some m4/3 camera owners.
