A lot of people have complained that the 7d is not full frame. However, looking at relative frame sizes, it seems that the 7d's 1.6x crop factor is actually equivalent to that of larger motion picture formats (Super35, RED). So, by extension, Super35 and Red aren't full frame either. To put it another way: if I put a 50mm lens on a 7d and on a RED from the exact same position, will I get the same frame size? I know the answer seems obvious, but I am curious if this is only an issue because it's different for STILL photographers, but in the world of cinematography it's a moot point. Here's a sensor/frame size comparison from RED: http://www.red.com/cameras/technology/
Also, I have a small director's viewfinder from FilmTools -- can I trust the S35 markings for my 7d lenses?
