re square crop: in camera vs post

just to be clear: does an in camera crop affect FOV? And even in post, would the FOV remain unless you used the crop to zoom?

Well, yes . Number one , most of the camera focal lengths are given based on the field of view using the diagonal dimension of the surface so yes

also on your pictures , there is no way for us to know ( of course , you youknow) if you cropped to a square JUST cropping the corners or if you also removed some of the top and/or bottom so that would change the EFFECTIVE fov used

If in camera crop to square affected FOV, wouldn't that be more like the 35/47mm crop mode on the GR?

well depends if the GR crop crops from the center and not just the corners ( not sure < I have to check that)

So out of those pictures there are only two that cropped could change the effective FOV: the homeless man in yellow sneakers and woman peaking out of the window.

There rest of square photos use the aspect ration selector built into the camera.  Using Lightroom, I can remove this camera crop, and it only crops the right and the left (the corners, as you said) and not the top and the bottom.

Hope that helps give a better, albeit not ideal, idea of the 60mmFOV.
