Hi everybody, I was reading a previous issues of "Film and Digital Times" and I came across a portion in wich the editor ask one of the lens engeneers behind the signature primes: -Q: "What happens with a large format lens like a signature prime on a Super 35mm camera like an Alexa SXT?" -A: "The LF lens looks the same as the S35 lens. An 18mm LF lens on the S35 camera looks just like an 18mm S35 lens on the S35 camera" Maybe I lack of knowledge, but I thought we were going to get a narrower field of view. So following the same logic for example if I put a 50mmn Master prime on an Arri 416 plus my lens would give me the same FOV as, for example, a 50mm Ultra 16 prime. I'm really confused about what happens when we put a bigger format lens on a smaller format sensor. Thanks in advance!
