50mm. = 50mm on the NEX 7?
8 months ago

This is probably a stupid question but here goes:

I compared one the 50mm legacy lenses form my Leica R on the NEX 7 of the house across the street.  Then I took the same picture of the house from the same position with the NEX 7's  18- 55mm kit lens.  Since there is no 50mm marking on the lens barrel, I had to approximate.  The size of the house was almost the same with either lens.

I thought a full frame legacy 50 mm lens would make the house much larger then 50mm on the kit lens because the NEX-7 is not full frame.  Where am I wrong?

Sony Alpha NEX-7
