    Does Nikon 50 mm AF-D lens becomes a wide angle lens if used with D70
    or it remains a 50 mm lens? Is there anything different happens when we
    use this lens with D70 because of CCD smaller than 35 mm film?
    Thanks in advance.

    A 50mm lens is a 50mm lens is...

    To follow the nomenclature, on a D70 the 35mm (film) equivalent would be
    1.5x, or a 75mm lens. You can find this by looking at the EXIF data from
    a D70 .jpg.

  4. Hi,
    no, it remains a 50mm and the image is not cropped down to the image of a
    The angle of view is reduced to that which a 75mm would have when mounted on
    a camera with a 35mm frame (of whatever recording media).

    There is no "multiplier".

    It's commonly referred to as a multiplier though, but you are correct. The
    angle of view is the only thing that changes. You get the angle of view of a
    75mm lens on a 50 - but it's still a 50mm.

  9. I didn't say "multiplied". I said "cropped".
