A&P On a 1.6x crop body, am I screwed...

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Jan 21, 2008.

  1. With any ounce of shooting professional images? I've been wonder, a lot of lenses, are designated for full frames, or non crop bodies. The thought of professional is exciting, I'm not shooting just to get money -- that's not what I want.

    But I want to know if buying more lenses for my crop body, is really going to pay off in the long run?

    Your post is hard as fuck to track...

    If you're asking if you'll never be as good as you could be on a full-frame body with your crop body: No. It doesn't make THAT big of a difference. A good photo is a good photo is a good photo. A good photographer can take an great photo with a point and shoot, SLRs and doodads just provide more flexibility.

    If you're asking if buying lenses for a crop body is going to benefit you: Only if you need to shoot stuff at that focal length. As long as you have a sharp lens, you should be able to take good pictures.

    If you're asking if buying lenses will make you better: No.

    If you're asking if you should buy full-frame lenses instead of crop-only lenses: Yes. All things being perfectly equal, full frame lenses have more staying power, but if you can get a sharper, better lens that's crop only, get it.

    In the future try to have your posts make some sort of sense.

    Guess what, sometimes pros use 1.6x bodies as well. You see a good number of pros with a 30 or 40D with a 70-200 2.8 on them at football games (along with their MK II or III and 400 2.8 on a monopod).

    Yes it's worth buying nice lenses for 1.6 crop cameras, unfortunately in your case you're probably too stupid to use them since you can't make an intelligible thread.
     
  8. Bah, sorry guys

    What I meant to say is, with my 1.6x crop can I produce professional images?

    Would I be laughed at, using a crop body if I wanted to go professional?

    Don't buy into the pissing contests. Crop bodies have been shooting professional portraits and sporting events for years. If you're that concerned about it, buy lenses that are compatible with FF and crop bodies.
