Size of lenses: MFT vs 1.5 crop
Jul 28, 2014

This is a very noob question but I had been thinking about this for some time and how the sizes of the sensor influence the size of the lenses. So this is going to be more of Micro Four Thirds vs 1.5 crop sensor.

The lenses for the 1.5 crop sensor are much bigger than MFT. Is this because 1.5 crop sesnors are almost 50% wider than MFT and therefor the lenses have to accomedate the wider sensor. So not only does the lens have to fit over the sensor but lens have to be more complex to convert the image into a wider picture?
