Is it better to use FX lens on DX camera ?
Jul 6, 2012


I have this quandrary of whether it is better to use an FX lens on DX (I have a D7000), maybe it is due to the fact that I have always found my 70-300 Fx to be better in sharpness, bokeh etc than the 16-85 DX lens (which also has been rated reasonably well)

So is there some logic to this or is it just my observation or are some FX lenses suitable for DX but some are not and it is wise to know which are not so that one does'nt end up buying it and then regretting it.

Also finally this entire talk about DX systems expiry which will end up burdening one with DX lenses ? (I have just added this extra comment, though my main argument is specified in the 1st paragraph)
