Angle Lens Olympus

Angle Lens Olympus
Effects of four thirds system on appearance of wide angle shots?

Kind of a dumb question, but if I attach an old manual 28mm Wide Angle Lens to my Olympus E400 Digital Slr (using an adaptor), what will be the effect of the four thirds x2 multiplier on the resulting images? Will they look somehow ‘less’ wide angle?
Does that also mean that a 50mm prime lens provides a smaller shooting frame – i.e. it is basically zooming in to 100mm?

Yes, It will no longer be a wide angle lens. 28mm x 2 = 56mm. Which in 35mm terms is normal. This would be approximately what the eye sees at. This is why wide angle Olympus 4:3 lenses are so small. The same is true for other DSLR’s though the crop factor is less.
