    Matt, Question on the focal length of a lens.
    How do manufactures measure the focal length of a lens.
    my uneducated thought would be the following.
    50mm lens
    Using a full frame sensor size cutout i.e. an old picture slide, holding the slide up 50mm away from your eye is this what a 50mm lens would be measured to replicate ???
    If not how is the measurement of a 50mm lens done.
