Re: Well, a lot of m4/3 users are misinformed at times too.

I've seen many m4/3 users state something along the lines of "a 20mm on m4/3 is the same as 40mm on FF" - except, this isn't completely true.

Sure. it may not be 100% technically accurate, but it's close enough and gets the concept across.

I can't tell you how many times I've tried to explain some technical thing to someone… Macs, music, bikes, photo stuff, whatever… and watch how QUICKLY their eyes glaze over and their interest evaporates.

So, I've found that a quick answer that gets the point across is better than going into some longwindedly accurate explanation that they really have no interest in hearing. If they're truly interested, they'll ask for more info. Usually, they won't and the quick answer was good enough… for BOTH of us!
