...except that it's always capitalized! (and if one wants to be truly anal, followed by the ® mark, but let's not push it).

Regarding max focal length, it's not out of the question to have to make shots up to 150mm in the 35mm format; you would have to translate for the format camera you are flying on your rig. Divide by 4.4 to get the 1/3 equivalent, for instance. Running shots would be more likely to max out around 50mm, realistically.
