Re: I'm just glad I picked a system with a 2x crop factor...

If you only use one system just learn what works for you using that system. Any 'equivalent' calculations become pointless.

Yes, that's right.

But most photographers work with a multitude of systems and I really would appreciate if all scales (aperture, ISO, focal length, exposure time) would be in 35mm equivalent terms so I could focus on my photography.

Obviously, exposure time would be the same in 35mm equivalent terms, but the other 3 aren't. That's a burden.

It would be problem with lenses mounting on both APSC and FF, but much less so for FT. I might more easily pick up a mFT as my 2nd system if I wouldn't have to rethink all scales all the time ...
