75mm f1.8 = Canon 85 f1.8?
Nov 19, 2013

I've shot Canon crop sensor DSLRs for a while now and own the very lovely 85mm f1.8.  I also own several Olympus m4/3 cameras and I'm wondering if anyone has compared the two lenses in terms of shallow depth of field equivalency.  Is the depth of field wide open about the same for both lenses on their respective bodies, or does the Canon have the shallower depth of field due to the larger sensor?

Anyone done any direct comparisons?
