In other words, if the same photo you have been referring to, would be shot with a FF Nikon and a 85mm at the same aperture, chances are that the bokeh would be very similar.

So now you can see why the comparision with the Nikon 85mm actually does make sense because both lenses are similar in the bokeh department. Practically, they will require shooting from a different distance to get it but this is part of the shooting technique a photographer has to learn.

That is only one side of the coin. The other side is that it will actually produce equivalent bokeh as a 75mm on a FF body for the same aperture.

Hi, Reygon

Quite frankly, I have no idea why anyone would compare the Nikon 85mm 1.4 with this lens - they are very different lenses.

On the bokeh front: in the picture I mentioned, you are getting bokeh equivalent to shooting with a 150mm lens at a 5.6 aperture, even though your lens is being used at 2.8
