How does FE 55mm perform in crop as a 85mm lens??
Jan 21, 2014

I'm currently having A7 and Nikon 85mm/f1.8 D lens with adaptor.

FE 55mm got very good review as a standard prime. But i'm just wondering how it will perform under crop mode as a 85mm (82.5mm precisely) compared with the Nikon lens.

I know I will only be able to use 10M pixels out of A7, but I also got AF so it's not a bad deal and 10M is enough for most of my usages.

My biggest concerns are DOF, IQ and shutter speed. Will they be shallower/better or at least comparable with the Nikon lens or any other 85mm full frame prime under the same aperture settings?
