Lens Angle of View Calculator
Confused by the effect a digital camera's sensor has on the angle of view of a lens? Then look at this angle of view calculator. You can select a sensor size (35mm film, Canon EOS 10D, Nikon D2H etc.) and a lens and the resulting angle of view is drawn on a graph. Cunning eh?

LensCalc Lite This is a smaller, more basic tool that just displays angle of view. Available for Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Medium Format and CCTV lenses.

Canon EOS 5 - lest we forget.
