Pancolar 50mm F1.8 on a DC-G9

Hi all,

Since I am not that technical just a short question. I bought a Pancolar 50mm f1.8 today, and also an adapter for M42>M43. I am going to use it on my Panasonic DC-G9 (system camera).
What would the mm be in 35mm equivalent, would that be 100mm ?

Thanks, Jurgen.

MFT bodies are generally called 2X crop -- so 100mm field of view.

However, that's not quite right because the MFT frame has an aspect ratio of 4:3 rather than 3:2. On the other hand, a typical 50mm lens might actually be something like 52mm... so close enough.
