After "equivalent focal length" (?) and then "equivalent aperture" (??), some clever fellow actually came up with "equivalent magnification"
One must factor pickles into the equation too since pickle magnification is not the same as optical magnification. The same is true for grainy film.

The Q with a macro lens would be pretty crazy with most subjects!
I tried once, you have to use a perfect macro lens if you want to get a good photo: CA, PF and diffraction can become huge.


Practical example: K-3 vs K-1, same lens and same macro ratio (60mm, 2:1):

OK, I'll bite, what's the difference?

If my K-1 puts 15 Pickles on my subject and my K-3 puts 24, the K-1 puts out 2100 lw/ph and the K-3 puts out 2700 lw/ph. How are they not the same? More pickles - more lw/ph.

I think part of the answer has to do with GSB (Gherkins per Square Bottle).

You say that like there's something wrong with that.

It is clear that it is utterly impossible to say 40,000 sensible things about Pentax in a month (lifetime?). Encouraging verbal flatulence on this site does humanity no favours. It is quality that should be encouraged, not quantity.

When has sensibility ever been a requirement of posting on this site?

If it were up to me to make 40K comments. you might be right.
But this is contributions from the entire community {images as well as words}, plus reactions, plus reactions to the reactions, etc.
Sometimes you get quality by sifting through the quantity.

Lately i have been doing alot of macro of very tiny insects. 5mm creatures need alot of crop at 1:1. So a reversed 50mm on my 55-300 plm gives me much more magnification. I just practiced at 2:1 on a zesty pickle. Yep macro pickles are a thing. Not so sure of mega pickles.
