The confusion is in equivalent. I would agree you get a FOV equivalent with this lens used on an fx camera to an 8 mm lens used on a DX camera. It just is not the way I'm used to comparing equivalents. I see lenses on dx compared to fx. For instance 100 mm lens used on dx give a FOV equivalent 150 mm. A 10 mm lens used on dx is equivalent to 15 mm on fx. Now to say a 10 mm lens on an fx gives a 7.5 mm FOV equivalent on a dx camera is just not how I see equivalents used. In my experience the 35 mm or FX is the standard of reference for determining what FOV the focal length lens will give you.
