The point is:
AP-S cameras do crop (by factor), thus we can apply "focal length
P&S cameras don't crop -we use focal length (35mm) equivalence for
easier understanding only.

What about a 4/3 camera? It has a sensor which is about half the diagonal of a full 35mm frame. It's interchangeable lenses are designed specifically to cover the smaller sensor size. Does it crop?
