Typo on Canon site

I wonder how many years this wrong lens info has been online...

XH A1S High Definition Camcorder :: The Genuine Canon Lens

"The focal length range of the standard lens is equivalent to 4.5 - to 90mm (in 35mm photography terms)."

Would have been interesting to have a camera lens with wider than 180 deg. angle of view :-)

Have a nice day, everyone!

Good eye, Peter! That mistake has properly lingered there for years. The correct info should be 32.5mm to 650mm for the equivalent.

With a lens that wide Peter, it was probably a camera that could foresee its own end!

I really need to install a "like" button.
