FOV comparison request - pretty please

Hi all,

I have sold all my zooms some time ago and so I'd like to ask you guys for a favor. Could anybody please post a shots (back yard, street anything really, bit of indoors too if possible) that would show the difference between 20 and 24mm (on APSC)?

20 should be hair narrower than 28mm on 135 AFAIK while 24 is touch more than 35 on 135 format...

Thanks a lot

mm - FF - HF
20 - 94 - 74
24 - 84 - 64
28 - 75 - 57
35 - 63 - 47

This table shows, for 20-24-28-35mm lenses, the FOV (in degrees) of 135/FF vs 135/HF (half-frame, about APS-C). Sorry, I don't have time for photos.

Thanks but I'm not big on angles and degrees...
Any pics would be appreciated.

Don't have any pics to provide, but Tamron has a tool on their website for comparing focal length, whether on full-frame, or APS-C:
