I was answering also what I understood to be the OP's follow-up question, "what lens do you recommend that captures the full 50mm" (POV, as seen in film cameras).

To which I recommended the 35/2.4 as a reasonable, and available approximation of that FOV.

You are saying that to get the same FOV as a 50mm on film that yoou need a 75mm lens on digital
I don't think I said that

Filing in the numbers we get 50 * 24 / 16 = 75mm and therefore it is said that a 50mm lens on APSc has the equivalent field of view of a 75mm lens on film
Maybe you can quote the part that causes the confusion or contains the error (or PM me if you don't want to pollute the thread).

Sometimes a picture is worth a dozen words....



This is a somewhat less than accurate look at what various formats will look like behind the same lens. I tried to be as close as possible, but if someone measures it out and finds it faulty, so what....

Excellent diagram - makes perfect sense when you see it like that.
