56mm vs 85mm perspective
2 months ago

Hi guys, I have a question about the crop factor for lenses. I have a D700 with 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lenses, and the compression at 85mm makes it my best "people" lens (if I have the space to use it). After being able to play with an X100S, I'm tempted by an X-T1, but I'm confused about the perspective differences. Would the 56mm be more like my 50mm, perspective/compression wise? Would it be the same as shooting my 50mm and then cropping a portion off the frame?

Thanks!
