Why no fast, cheap nifty-30s for APSC? (30 is the new 50?)
May 3, 2012

why are there not loads of nifty 30's for APSC, surely they should be easy to make around 1.4 or 1.8 - just copy the classic nifty 50 designs scaled down and give us cheap fast 30's???

Maybe more diffraction issues at small apertures but otherwise easy for 'standard' FOV - no?
