>>>Yeah I mean it's a crop. Sure you don't get the same FOV as you would on the same lens with a full frame sensor or 35mm film.

...But then every format is either a crop or enlargement compared to a different format. The 35mm Full Frame Still Photo format is a huge crop when compared to a 4x5 inch large format camera.

People coming from still photo background tend to get brainwashed on the 35mm Full Frame Still Photo format being the norm, when it is nothing like the norm for video or motion picture formats.

We have to start thinking in terms of FOV ( field of view ) where it doesn't matter what lens or format you shoot with, it's the FOV and DOF ( depth of field ) that create much of the "look" that we are after.
