    The diagonal measurement of the sensor will give you the 'normal' focal length.

    Full frame 36x24: √(36² + 24²) = 43.267
    APS-C 24x18 : √(24² + 18²) = 32.863.
    µ4/3 = √(17.3² + 13²) = 21.64.

    Go read some online reviews of the cameras you are considering buying. The reviews will tell you what it is like to use them. Cameras these days are so good that they are typically better than users.

    I think it is best if you tell us what you are exactly looking for in a camera.
    We know you want it to zoom, but how much? How far do you want to zoom in?
    it needs to be small to travel. Isn't a decent high end compact camera better then? There are some great ones out there.
    What is the main purpose of the camera? Landscapes, people, general traveling?
    And budget?
