LW 8.5 win 32. The FOV/focal lenght / aperture size system seems strange. It is generaly admited that a 50 mm lens on a 135 SLR has a FOV of about 40X27 (for a standard 1.5 ratio image, eg 900x600).
LW way is more like 43.6X30. If I'm not mistaken, that's more than 55 of diagonal FOV, much more than what you get with a 50 mm (my 50 mm Nikon lens is refered has having a 46 diagonal FOV).
Is it a known bug?
