I just finished loading Photo Browser V3 - installed the latest update and took a look at a few of the first pictures I took. I bought a K100D kit and looked at two pictures, one of which at each end of the lens' focal length (kit lens is the 18-55mm F3.5-5.7 AL). The camera also has the latest firmware udpate V1.01 installed.

With the 1.5X factor, I expected to see somthing like ~28mm at one end and ~80 at the other, instead I saw 50mm and 105mm. I'm new to this sensor-impact on focal length and before I start playing with my older FA lenses, I'd like to better understand what results to expect with what lens.

I'm asking if I have a problem in the software, hardware or in what I'm expecting to see as focal length results when using the Photo Browser software! Am I simply interpreting the results shown in Browser wrong?? :?

Don't count the crop factor, if you shoot at 18 mm the exif should show 18 mm. If you shoot at 55 mm and the exif says 105, then there is something wrong. Hopefully not with the picture, which is what photography is about.
