Re: Equivalent focal length for MFT lenses

I thought I've answered your question:

You have MFT 6.7/300 attached to MFT camera, and you have FF 6.7/600 attached to FF camera. Now, you're taking shot from the same spot with both cameras.

1. you will get the same FOV

2. If you set the same F stop and shutter speed, you will use the same ISO.

3. If F stops are the same, DOF will be 4 times deeper on M43.

Well, probably I was too optimistic about DOF.

You may disagree with my assessments, and use your common sense. Anyway, it will not affect your photos
