Re: When you will stop with "35mm equivalent" terms ?

Actually I have stopped using 35mm terms. I never refer to my DA21 as anything other than a 21mm lens. I couldn't care less if there was a time in the past on 35mm film I'd have used a lens to get the same framing from the same spot that had a different focal length.

I know on my K-5 that if i want wide angle shot i'll use my DA12-24. On my 645 i'll use my A45mm lens.

I actually have no idea how the 645 translates to 35mm format. I just know what I expect to see through the lens.

OK, I think you understand me, I wanted you to confirm that the FF or 35mm is and WILL remain as standard. What you did. That is very good news for me. Thanks.
