FZ1000: Crop factor and equivalent 35mm focal length

The advertised lens specifications for the FZ1000 are 9.12 - 146mm.

The advertised crop factor  is 2.7x , giving an equivalent focal length of approximately 25 - 400mm.

However, look at the first sample photograph in this review: -- the link was posted in another thread, by member Elaka Farmor:

To see the samples, click on "Testbilder."

Under the first photograph, you will see examples spanning the range of focal lengths:

27 mm    54 mm   108 mm    216 mm   432 mm

Using these focal lengths, the crop factor is 2.96. I confirmed that by looking at the EXIF in my browser:
