FOV is exactly my question. If I understand correctly then, the lens is 40mm actual measurement. Putting it on a DSLR gives it apparent FOV of a 60mm. Putting it on a 35mm camera gives 40mm FOV. So the 40mm acts almost like a 50mm "std" lens. To get a wide angle, you need the 21mm, which gives a FOV of approx. 32mm lens. Wow.
