Confusion on crop factor reach equivalent
4 months ago

I understand (some) the crop factor reach equivalent of my DX (Nikon D300) of 1.5X  and my FF (D800) with actual focal length lens (no crop multiplier) . I also have the Olympus OMD1 with a crop reach factor of 2X. Thus I think if I use say 100mm focal length lens on my FF camera, I would use about a 67mm lens on the D300 and a 50mm focal length lens on my OMD1 to get the same focal length equivalent.

If I were to get one of the newer super zooms   Panasonic FZ1000 or the Sony RX10, I think both have 1 inch sensors, are the focal lengths such that at 100mm on each of these cameras, I would have the same apparent reach on my pics as a FF lens at 100, a DX lens at 67, and the OMD1 lens of 50 mm.

I hope the meaning of my question is apparent. How to compare equivalent reach of FF lens, DX lens, OMD1 lens and the panasonic and sony lens.

Thanks sorry if confusing.
