    I didn't fully understand this whole crop factor business until after i bought my first "real" lens (50mm 1.8). geez i have to step further back than i thought to take pictures. but i guess with lower end DSLRs (XT) i have no choice right? =[

    so 50mm is practically 80mm. geez! >_<

    Yep. It's quite handy for telephotos; you get more for your money. But it does negatively affect the wider end, unfortunately.

    I'd love my 10-22 to be a real 10mm. But 16mm is still lovely.

    My 70-200 f/2.8 with a TC-14E II becomes the equivalent of a 420 f/4 (with VR)......see avatar.

    But once you used to it. It is not a problem any more.

    For those like to get the 85mm f1.8, they can get a 50mm and save some $$. How nice, right? I have the 50mm and really, once you know the lens, it is really not a problem at all.

    It could be worse-- my camera is an advanced p&s and it has about a 6x crop factor. That is one of the biggest frustrations with my camera and one of the few reasons I'm thinking about upgrading to a dslr anytime soon.

    I don't see how the camera cropping the image, or photoshop cropping is any different?

    It means you can't fit everything you want into the picture, given the same viewing distance.
