Thread: Dark Corner: Film Lens + Digital Body ?

    Default Dark Corner: Film Lens + Digital Body ?

    Heard from a digial camera talk that: for digital cameras (crop factor >1) e.g. Canon 300D. Nikon 70D, if a conventional film lens is used, the pic will have dark corners in the final pic. But my thinking is the other way around: If a lens specially designed for a digital body (crop factor > 1), then when use on a film SLR camera (crop factor =1), then we will see dark corners. For normal lens use on a digital SLR body, there should have not any pic quality issue other than the zoom range changed (x crop factor).

    Am I right ?

    Yups you are right. There is no vignetting if you use a 35mm film lens on a APS sized sensor DSLR.

    Thanks.

    Was confused at the talk which was given by a 30+years-experienced photographer . He claimed that was the one (drak cornor) of the reasons that he threw away all the Nikon and Canon lens he had and moved to a xxx brand DSLR as it has more digital lens. Hope he should have let us know where he dumped the lens. :-)

    experienced doesn't mean knowledgeable

    30+ years of experience?
    But he's still a newbie in the world of digital I guess.

    A lot of Big titles in the name card. Also a master of DSLR of a xxx brand (not Nikon or Canon). Complain the dusts in Nikon/Canon 'plastic' lens, CMOS sensor, lens/body not water/weather proof .... A biased talk. Very disappointed.
