Field of view is what counts

Yes, a 200mm lens is still a 200mm lens no mater what camera it's mounted to, but when it brings you in twice as close (due to the narrowerr FOV) that's where the advantage comes in. (but at the wide end, it's a dissadvantage, as you need to be that much wider for the same FOV

So while he's right (focal length is focal length) He's totally clueless (saying there's no atvantage)
