Re: I don't understand all this babling about.....

"walk around" lenses.

What is so complicated about this issue.

It seems that somehow using a format based on 110 film has changed the laws of Physics and everything about photography that was learned in the past needs to be "rediscovered".

Look, this is simple.

Camera manufacturers have known since the 1950's that people on vacation need a travel camera because they are "walking about" and need to take photo's.  They have sold tens' of millions of those types of cameras in lots of different formats-35mm, 126, 110, 16mm, half frame, etc.

For 35mm film, they put a 35mm lens on the camera.

In the 4/3 sensor world that is a 17mm lens.



Already figured out.

You can erase all the previous posts.

This is the only one anybody needs.
