Re: Crop Factors

Crop factor has nothing to do with what is set by manufacturers. It is a descriptive term that is driven by the size of the sensor, and the manufacturers DO tell you the size of the sensors.

It's like saying a van is twice the size of a car and a school bus four times the size of a van. It's just descriptive.
