In a dSLR the sensor is the same distance as the film, otherwise the lens
would NOT focus to infinity. The image area is just cropped. The only lenses
that may be closer to the sensor are the Canon EF-S lenses. The fact all
other lenses from the makers 35mm SLR cameras function is because the snesor
and film is at the same distance.
