Re: What "exactly" is an equivalent lens as regards to the sensor size?

NOW, if you want to achieve the same level of noise and DOF in the same situation with the V1, you would need a 18.5mm f/0.67 lens. That would be an equivalent lens to the 50/1.8 on the D610.

i would think an f/0.67 aperture would be one hell of an expensive lens. also, not everyone is too concerned over measure bating the noise level equivalents.

yet, for those whom are inclined to measurebate,  they'd probably be better off buying the right tool for the right job in the first place, rather than demanding it from systems not designed to meet the same tight spec'd requirements. there's a lot to be said about improvisation, sticking to a budget, getting the most out of what you got, and being happy.
