I got the Canon 85mm "sharp as a tack". First time I used it, the house was bearly big enough to back up far enough. For a small family grouping, not a single close-up, it's too long. Look at this Depth of Field calculator which is actually a full angle-of-view and distance planner. See what the lens might be good for in terms of how much room you have. ...


50mm on cropped do not work like 85mm on full. whoever says that do not understand anything from photography or physics. field of view may be somewhat alike. but bokeh and background separation are much more different. 85mm bokeh and separation is %70 better on a 85mm.


The full frame camera will generally give more distortion than a crop body camera with the same wide angle lens because the wider angle of view obtained with a FF camera includes the edges that are cropped when using the same lens with an APS-C camera. Cropping the FF camera's image to get the same Field of View (FoV) as the APS-C camera will yield the same ...


I think this is an "apples and oranges" comparison - of you use the same lens on a full frame and a crop camera, you get different fields of view, so it's not really meaningful to compare which has more distortion. That said, the literal answer to your question is using the lens on a full frame camera, as you're then using the full extent of the lens's ...


A 50mm on a cropped sensor behaves exactly like an 85mm on a full frame. The answer to your question is a subjective one as others have mentioned; it's a personal choice. I shoot both 50 & 85 but for serious portraiture and commercial work, I always use my 85.. . the silky bokeh and wafer thin field of focus work to my advantage with regard to ...


I use the fisheye on a 28mm to 70mm zoom, allowing it on my smaller sensor Nikon to make an almost complete circle image at the one end and fairly straight lines at the other. On my film camera it was more dramatic. I enjoy shooting people from just inches away but it also displays a room well if not straight.


That doesn't seem normal, no. Because the f/number relates to exposure at any given point (not total sensor size), the crop factor shouldn't matter. Since you had a one-stop lower ISO, one would expect the other camera to be correct at half the shutter speed, not several times longer. Were you both framing a roughly identical scene? Does the same thing ...
