- Edit My Images
Where do you all stand on the affect on aperture when a FF lens is used on a crop body. I totally get the part that the DOF is affected when a FF lens is attached to a crop body, but often hear arguments for and against the aperture changing. Obviously using the FF lens on both a FF body then a crop body will yield two different looking images, but say you cropped both pictures down to a size where they looked like identical images, assuming the same focal point is selected on both. Does this now give you say an F2 aperture on both final images or does the original crop body image now display a F3 or 3.2 (depending on crop factor). OK I can already sense people thinking why the hell does it matter or thinking just get the correct equipment for what you want to achieve, but I have been party to an ongoing dispute between a couple of photography friends and I was just curious on what others think.
