I'm not saying the math is unimportant, just not necessary to draw the appropriate conclusion.

By using a field-of-view chart, and Canon's published 35mm equivalency statistics, it appears to me that the XL2 is delivering a 4:3 FOV consistent with 1/4" cameras.

"I'm not saying the math is unimportant

Sorry, I wasn't trying to put words in your mouth there Barry.

You are right, the math is not necessary to draw the appropriate conclusion.
The differences we are discussing are so miniscule at this point,
that I would image they make no 'real world' difference.

Exactly! Let's remember that the final production models haven't even been released yet.

Without the ability to determine the T/depth of comfusion vs. the M/depth of confusion, the cone of visibility by the field/(chip), (any size), cannot be determined.* T, meaning True. M, meaning Mathemathical.

Or, to put it more bluntly: Put both the XL-1s & the XL-2 together and look at the results.

Every thing else is mere conjecture.
