It becomes a 200+ f/2
I assume my D700 in DX mode will give the same result (same DOF) @ 135 as say a D50 would at (135 * 1.5= 202.5) - or would I get better bokeh with the D50?
it would be teh same or i'd get better bokeh?
You'd also be using the sweet spot of the glass.
Ive thought about this before. I feel like 135 on FX may be sharper because you can get closer to the subject. Since distance affects DOF, the fact that I can get closer with a 50 on FX than on a DX camera makes me think that that's the case. Could be wrong though
Yeah, I don't notice any difference in bokeh when I change my D700 to DX mode, so I am guessing bokeh w a 135 on a crop body looks identical to that of a D700 even though it is technically a longer focal length.
I sold my 50 1.4 and I'm selling my 85 1.8 tomorrow, both for about $80 more than I paid for them. gonna look into a 135/2 soon, since I can't realistically see myself dumping $3000 on a 300/2.8 or 200/2
Standing in the same place and shooting the same thing...
DOF will be shorter on the 200/2+FX than on a 135/2+DX.
And dont try and use crop body math to make you feel like youre getting some super sweet deal by getting a 135/2 and thinking its anything like a 200/2. Its not.
it wasn't a means of justification to buy the lens, more of an afterthought that seemed kinda cool
