Crop factor

I had a thought, people go on about how with dx frame camera your lenses technically get closer in because of the crop factor BUT is it not the same thing for me to zoom in on a full frame to that length and then crop it after if I really wished??

This was covered today here

It would depend on how many pixels you were left with after cropping.

All irrelevant. The only people it matters to are those who sell lenses. I've never understood this, it's the photo equivalent of reading " this is the DOS equivalent". Who gives a fu"baissez-moi" about DOS, or about lens comparisons? Get a lens, stick it on yer camera, find out what it does. End of.

sorry I'm completely lost. I do fully remember DOS as before Windoze but what is the context here AND what do you mean exactly by "lower me"?
