Re: Why make it so hard? Degrees describe what is relevant to photography...

With that in mind, I suggest "22 degrees field of view on a m43 sensor".

But, that's not FOV you're referring to. (FOV uses a distance value, e.g. 23m, which describes the field height/width/diagonal).

You're referring to the AOV (Angle-Of-View).
