Re: Focal length 35mm equivalent, but not F-stop?

F numbers are great because they let us use the same exposure settings regardless of format, but that's only useful when you are taking a picture. When comparing specs to make a buying decision they tell you nothing about the camera's performance and lead to people thinking that a compact with an f/1.8 lens will be better in low light than a full frame with an f/4 lens.
