Re: Crop stuff

Get the instructor to read this page http://dpanswers.com/content/tech_crop.php as it seems to be the best one around explaining this sort of stuff.

If he refuses to read it then bye, bye, waste of time being there.

That's a good read. The instructor doesn't even need to make that much of an effort though.  All he really needs to do is read a description of a Nikkor Dx (cropped sensor) lens. We'll take the Nikkor 35mm 1.8G DX as an example. As described on B&H's product page:

"To fulfill the needs of digital photographers owning Nikon cameras with DX-sized sensors, Nikon produces the 35mm f/1.8 AF-S DX Lens. This lens produces an angle of view similar to what a 50mm lens would produce on a full-frame/FX camera and thusly functions as a "normal" lens. Prior to the digital explosion, most shooters would begin their exploration into the world of photography with a "normal" lens with a large maximum aperture."
