comment How can I find C Mount lenses which would work well on Micro Four Thirds?
Are you shooting video or stills? Video is much less demanding on resolution so fast C mount lenses are a very attractive option

I actually quite like the effect of an undersized image circle. It would get repetitive if you did it for every shot though. But if your FF camera has enough megapixels you can crop out the middle and get similar shots to what you would with the 450D

normally I'd agree and say get the EF lens, but the questioner has no definite plans to go FF, it could be a year away which is plenty of time to learn a lens, and benefit from it offsetting the cost of selling it.

@eWolf That post misses a huge thing about full frame, which is the shallower depth of field it offers, a crop body & 30 f/1.4 will not replicate the look of a 50 f/1.4 on full frame. See photo.stackexchange.com/questions/3986/…

@chills42 purple fringing is different to (lateral) chromatic aberration, CA turns up in the corners whilst purple fringing happens around highlights anywhere in the frame.

comment What is tone mapping? How does it relate to HDR?
@che I totally agree, in the few occasions I've needed to extend the dynamic range I've done it by hand (see photo.stackexchange.com/questions/3394/…) I could do with updating the answer by discussing different tonemapping methods. I also have a version of that same image which I did with flash!

comment How do constant aperture lenses work?
@Nick the front element has to be as big as the apparent aperture, I meant the part where the aperture blades are is narrower than 150mm.

@thomasrutter Nothing the clone tool can't handle! But yes its time for a clean, been shooting a lot of low light stuff so big aperture, this is the first time I've stopped down past f/5.6 for a while. I was just commenting on another thread how I change lenses whenever I want to and don't lay awake at night worrying about dust, this at least proves I practice what I preach!
