I'm speaking strictly if FOV... not mm. Not 8mm. Not 10mm. And not 12mm. I have never stated the focal length 'magically' changes.
Angles. Field of View. 'How much' of the scene is captured.
What I'm saying is the second shot give me the equivelant of an 8mm lens ONLY IN TERMS OF FOV.
Another trick I use in this configuration.... faking a circular fisheye effect. Take the same frame, but in portrait orientation. Combine them in post to simulate the fisheye..... but without the field curvature.
I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!
