A 50 is a 50 is a 50!

When I was younger, I remember hearing the phrase "a 50 is a 50 is a 50". A phrase coined by Denny Clairmont and carried on by my father. This was in regards to people using 35mm format lenses on a 16mm format camera. Denny or my father would scold people for saying that a particular focal length is multiplied when used on a smaller format. This is simply inaccurate. Unfortunately this mistake has become even more common today with popular formats such as Super 35 or APS-C. These are considered "crop sensors" when compared to 35mm Full Frame and only utilize a portion of the intended image circle created by a Full Frame lens. The only thing that changes when using a 35mm FF lens on a Super35/APS-C sensor is the field of view (FOV) or the angle of view. So unless you've spent the past 30 years memorizing the field of view associated with a specific focal length, strictly on 35mm Full Frame, don't bother trying to compensate for crop factor.
