Use Radians Completly Junk '35 mm equivalent'.

deja vu

Why reference lens specs to an obsolete technology or sensor size to some difficulty to grasp fraction? (unless it's for marketing to obscure the fact that small sensors should cost less, etc.).

The radian system is the simplest and most useful for discussing field of view. ( Radians discussed in 3 replies of mine in the above thread.)
