Thread: 35mm & 50mm trade off

  1. #1

    Default 35mm & 50mm trade off

    What can be the trade off for using a 35 as compared to the 50 and vice versa ? Apart from the focal length . Maybe sharper with a 35 ? (on a cropped body)

    What are the lenses you are talking about here?

    I'm using a 35mm on a crop body as I find the 50mm too tight. Generally, it would be easier to obtain a blur background with the 50mm.

    IQ would be lens dependent.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Not much difference only focal length. IQ, sharpness etc would have to depend on which lens you talking about.

    For me i use 50mm on crop for my streets as i find it suits me but 30mm on crop for events. 50mm too tight.

    Same with me, I prefer my Sigma 30mm over Canon's 50 for indoor. On a cropped body too..

    The sharpness of the two lenses should not differ by too much. U should focus more on the focal length and wat u need the lens for rather IQ. A lot of people buy the 50mm lens on impulse becos it's inexpensive but realize tat it is difficult to use it on cropped bodies. After all, it's still waste of money and time.
