Is this sneakyspeak fo not full frame? If by 1.7 they mean that the coverage is only 1/1.7 .. that is awful!

nikon d100 is 1.5
canon is d60 is 1.6
canon eos-ds 1.0
kodak DCS pro14n 1.0

lets call it- subject to interpetation. to some here it means they now have even a longer telephoto.

So it IS sneakyspeak! Whay a bummer!

IMO, this consigns the Foven/Sigma to the trash heap of too late and not good enuff.

This business of claimning one gets free telephoto is out and out dishonesty ... it tis the same thing as digital zoom!

Imagine what would happen if Nikon started to sell a "zoom" lens that achieved tis effect by cropping the film image!

In Yddish we refer to such tactics as "Pheh!"

So I'll call it pheh-speak!
