Really, who the hell cares about all these equivalency arguments. There are such finer aspects of image quality and lens rendering that have a much greater impact on your photography. f/2.0 is more than sufficient for effective subject isolation even when the subject is enormous, and a couple of meters away.

Close Encounter

Glad that you had such big aperture.

Because the elephant would never have fitted in a smaller aperture.

No, seriously : that's an impressive shot.

Be glad that our 2x cropfactor allowed you to stay a bit further back.
