Re: There are no small shallow DOF lenses for N1

It is not possible to make small lens for N1 which would do what e.g. 85/1.4 does on FX. I believe this is the main point. It is possible to make small lenses for N1 but they will not have shallow DOF or very good low light capabilities.

It is not possible to buy a current FF Nikon 229.5mm f1.4 lens or Nikon 200mm f1.4 lens for that matter which is what the 85mm f1.4 translates into.

The closest is the Canon 200mm f1.8.
