This has only become the norm in recent times, in film days we had none of this ‘crop factor’ nonsense, a 50mm lens was the standard based on comparable field of view to the human eyesight and a 300mm lens was just that, 300mm which I suppose you could describe as a 6x telephoto. I think we’ve got used to getting that extra reach and I too would sorely miss it. I guess with FF you’ve got more leeway to crop but does it compare to the extra crop being in the camera?
Swings and roundabouts, all of it.
