From what I understand, legacy lenses on a Micro 4/3 camera double the MM, so my 50mm lens becomes a 100mm equivalent on a Micro 4/3 camera, and 28mm becomes a 56mm equivalent, I was unaware of that when I first got the lenses, but after some time plating with them the 56mm and 100mm seemed perfect.

your field of view becomes equivalent of focal length of the lens you are using multiplied by crop factor of 2. your lens didn't change

E-M5+45mm/1.8
E-520+12-60+14-42+70-300+Sigma 105 + FL-50R+EC20 + SRF-11
