As somebody who has been taking photographs for over 30 years, I find this present day fixation with comparing depth of field to 35mm format rather peculiar.

In the past there were interchangeable lens cameras with a variety of formats, some smaller than 35mm and some considerably bigger, and nobody recalculated f numbers to compare to 35mm. For instance, if you bought a Plaubel Makina with an 80mm f2.8 lens, this was thought of as f2.8, not f1.4 equivalent.

Could this be because they were actually too busy taking photographs???
