What's an equivalent Four Thirds aperture? This article discusses the relative traits of Four Thirds (and Micro Four Thirds) lens setting compared to other camera systems and rediscovers some of the strengths designed into the Four Thirds system.

I have stuck this thread as it links to an article (admittedly one I wrote!) that I feel might be of educational interest to at least a few here :)

It looks at the equivalence of apertures between new (like Four Thirds) and legacy systems, and other lens attribute factors that are advantageous to Four Thirds.

It helps clarify a lot for those who are unsure how 4/3 relates to other format sizes. :)
