Another thing that hasn't been mentioned is that only the FoV is cropped, perspective compression and distortion remain unchanged as they are dependant on focal length. For 50mm on FF, you still need a 50mm on m43, you will just have to be a bit further back. Or you can remain the same distance using a 25mm, but the photos are ultimately different.

Perspective compression and distortion is ONLY dependant on distance to subject.


The photos Ulric provided are surely substantial to the discussion, but the effect I refer to is not apparent. So there, I am confused. Here is a (better?) demonstration of what I meant:

The effect in the link is from different distanse to the subject.
If you would do the same using only one lens (cropping the picture as you move furter back to make it look like the subject is at the same distanse), the effect would be exactly the same using the same focal lenght on all pictures.

If focal lenght had anything to do with it, you would see fisheye effect on the tele end of compacts...
