6x telescope or 4x telescope
#1
This may be the ultimate stupid question, but i want to get beyond guesses.
My 55-200 mm Nikkor lens works like an 82-300 mm (in 35 mm terms) becauise of the 1.5 sensor correction. In 35 mm terms (where 50 mm is normal), it should look like 6x telescope through the viewfinder. Now when I look through the vuiewfinder of my SLR am I seeing a 6x telescope (30 mm) through the lens or a 4x telescope (200 mm). Do they used masks on the viewfinder or what?
Nikon D3100 with Tokina 28-70mm f3.5, (I like to use a Vivitar .43x aux on the 28-70mm Tokina), Nikkor 10.5 mm fisheye, Quanteray 70-300mm f4.5, ProOptic 500 mm f6.3 mirror lens. http://donschaefferphoto.blogspot.com/
