Re: Pentax is really being idiotic

I would imagine you are well aware they are simply referring to the equiv. FOV that a 70mm lens would produce on a 1.5 crop body.

I agree, it's an inaccurate way to describe it. But for better or worse, people are accustomed to using the FL in MM as a measure of magnification. I admit, I do that too.

Granted, a lot of todays customers have never used a 35mm camera so for them the entire "FL as magnification" thinking isn't ingrained. But for plenty of others, it still is.
