Why does crop factor apply with APS-C lenses, and why aren't these brighter than FF ones at same aperture?
I know that the image circle of FF-lenses is bigger than it needs to be on APS-C sensors, thus the FOV spears narrower. I've heard that APS-C lenses sit closer to the sensor, thus projecting a smaller ...
When a zoom lens is designed for a cropped (APS-C) imaging circle, does the imaging circle necessarily stay that small throughout the zoom range? It is easily understandable that a prime lens ...
I can see the benefit of designing and manufacturing a wide-angle lens specifically for APS-C sized sensors instead of full-frame sensors: you will get smaller, lighter, and cheaper lenses. But is it ...
Looking into these two lenses, I'm getting the impression that for my Nikon D-90 with DX camera sensor that the f/1.8d would waste light that is cropped by the sensor whereas the f/1.4g would not as ...
