APS-C can match any equivalent 1" longer focal length.

That is the whole issue in that you can always extract many different 1" sensor focal length equivalent views out of an aps-c sensor greater than the actual focal length whereas with the 1" the extract crop is all you have.

I don't get it. Nikon has an 800 F/5.6, so does Canon, but you need an adaptor for the Nikon 1 series.

Or are you talking about the crop factor of the sensor, because that actually has nothing to do with focal length. A 300mm is a 300mm, unless you add a touch of magic to it somehow and it grows. Sensor crop factor can't physically grow a lens in focal length.

I always refer to my lenses for what they are even on APS-C, a 300 is a 300, the 500 is a 500 and the 800 is an 800. I can't change that no matter what sensor is stuck behind it. Its even written on the lens !!

All the best.

Danny.
