    I believe you are looking at the reproduction ratio listed on many (if not all lenses). For instance, a true macro lens has a reproduction ratio of 1:1 or better. so if you had a 1:1 reproduction ratio lens and took a photo of something the exact same size as your sensor, it would (actually, you "could") totally fill the frame of your photo.

    If you want to learn more, "google" camera lens reproduction ratio. There is way better explainations than I could put into words.
