The focal length multiplier is 1.6
So a 200mm lens = 320mm (200 x 1.6)
I think that translates to almost 9X.
I'm looking for advice on lens selection for the Canon Rebel. It came with an 18-55 in the box. I want to take advantage of the rebates Canon is offering and purchase a couple of lenses. I'm definately going to get the Canon EF 28-135 F3.5-5.6 USM IMAGE STABILIZER LENS. I have only heard good things about this lens. I was also considering the EF 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens, but the reviews weren't that great. I want a longer lens for outdoor sporting, scenery, wildlife etc.. Is there a better choice to spend my $400 ($300 after rebate)?
Also what does the digital image translate into. In other words what is the real length of a 200mm lens on a digital camera?
