Re: Photography 101

indeed "pictures" are not the same (because framing changes)

Exactly - the pictures are not the same, because you now moved and now have different perspective. the focal length doesn't change the perspective, but it demands you to change it to get the same picture.

cropping a wide angle picture will not change the perspective of the picture, but it will not give you the same picture as with a true tele lens - because of perspective. so the answer to why you need different focal lengths is perspective.
