Yes, correct and good to point out. Magnification is a function of the
projection and not sensor size but I thought Chuck made the question at hand
clear. The terminology could use an update.
What many care about more is what the image looks like. So an image at 1:1
with a 120mm lens on full frame would require use of a 60mm lens on 4/3 at 1:2
to appear about the same. The working distance
is about the same as 90mm lens on full frame. That is the point. A longer FL
macro lens would be welcome.
