Thread: Focal length on D70

  1. #1

    Default Focal length on D70

    Does anyone know where the current focal length is displayed? I can't seem to see it in the viewfinder nor the lcd.

    You have to check your lens for the current focal length.

    Aiyo he saying the numbers on the lens are analog lah.
    Anyway here's a pic of a lens, it's a 17-55mm DX.

    See lower part of the lens are printed the focal length (17,20 etc)
    See the white mark above the 35, it means that lens is at 35mm focal length now. Hope this helps.

    do note that to get the effective focal length (due to crop factor) u have to multiply the number indicated by the white pointer by 1.5x

    Why do you need to know the focal length?
