Your point is well taken, but usually there is the actual focal length
and a '35mm equivalent'. Personally, I think I'd rather see focal length
divided by diagonal of the sensor. Then I'd know that 1.0 means it's a
'normal' view, less than 1.0 is 'wide angle' and greater than 1.0
'telephoto' and it would also give the magnification.
