Re: Sean, did you read Umbalito's post?

Keep in mind that a lot of people who use a 50 and became famous were probably using a full frame camera. So, on your APS-C camera this is most equivalent to a 35mm lens. I love the 35 on my APS-C, but I prefer my 24mm the most. A 24 on our cameras is close to a 35mm on full frame, which is why I am buying the RX1 (35 FF) since I can shoot this every day all the time.

So if you're looking for people who used a focal length like your 50 then you should seek out pros who use a 75mm lens to find the closest equivalent lens to what you'd frame.

He is shooting with a 50mm equivalent lens (i.e a 35mm).

Clearly, I must not have read it. Doh!

On the other hand, my post sure would have helped me a little over a year ago, so maybe someone else gained something from reading it.
