    In theory, both cam should be at 28mm due to their corp factor. Take a picture and see if they show the same amount of wide angle.

    The given spec of the corp factor of the Olympus cam is 2x. By computation, fiji cam corp factor is about 4.516.
    Crop, not corp...

    In short, because the sensor size is not full frame, you will not get the exact wideness from the lens which is listed down. Every DSLR except for full-frame DSLR - which currently only Canon 30D, correct me if there's more.. Will have this thing called a CROP FACTOR.

    Which means you multiply whatever focal length you have by that crop factor, which will give you the equivalent for 35 mm camera, which is the basis of everything we're talking about today.

    If this isn't clear enough, it probably isn't, just GOOGLE crop factor. And if you still don't understand.. Then just suck thumb and accept it as it is, heh.

    Correction, 30D does not have a full frame sensor, if it does, it would not be at that price. 5D and 1Ds Mark II are full frame.
