Nice photos - I was being a bit mischievous. Of course shallow DOF is possible on a crop frame camera especially at the longer end; but the wider you go, the more difficult it is to achieve. For instance to get the crop equivalent DOF of a (£100) 50mm f1.8D, you would need to get a 35mm f1.2. There is no crop equivalent of the 50mm f1.2 or f1.4

Wide fast lenses are very expensive.

haha thank you ... me too lol

The top one was shot using the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 at F1.8   Outstanding lens that performs like 3 fast top primes. The bottom one was shot using the 8mm F2.8 samyang, which is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on and incredibly sharp for such a lens.

Just the two extremes of DOF
