That's a MARKETING thing...

I think I've seen at least one Olympus four-thirds lens actually marked with both the actual focal length, and also having in large letters the 35mm equivalent focal length displayed on the side too.

When manufacturers do things wrongly, its difficult to expect people to not be follow their lead.

Olympus puts a REMOVABLE sticker on their consumer lenses to let the uneducated know the equivalent range of the lens when they buy it.  It only describes the range of te lens...it doesn't indicate the actual zoom positions, like a speedometer marked in km and miles.

The first thing I do (after testing a lens) is remove that sticker!
