I believe once somebody reads about it (either Joe's essay or the recent dpreview article), then he/she would not need to ask over and over again. Well, those forums prove me wrong...

Because you're a smart guy, you wonder why would anyone need to ask any question - just google it or look up in the dictionary... If you take a bit kinder attitude, you will see that people like to have their hands held because it's not just the technology and technical fact that they want.

You misrepresented my words. I was wondering why would anybody ask a question over and over again after an answer has been provided, and after the answer is as simple as that: just multiply three numbers (F-stop, FL and ISO) by the crop factor. If they want to know why - just tell them to read one of the sources I mentioned or explain it.
