Describing a lens as having an equivalent focal length is simply wrong. I can't make it any more concise than that.

Provide a concise precise technical definition of equivalent as you are using the term. That will save a lot of the round robin discussions that have taken place.

I just did. It's more accurate to say a focal length when used on a particular format has a particular FOV.
