50mm f/1.4 as a portrait lens
1 month ago

Assuming an 85mm lens is good for portraits on a full frame camera.  Good because of the low distortion of head, nose, eyes, and ears, proportions.  Would the 50mm work fine for a crop sensor camera (my T5i)?  FOV would be the same as a 80mm lens and therefore pretty good for portraits as long as you backed up a little from the subject.

Or, does the 50mm preserve the distortion, on a crop sensor, it would have produced on a full frame?
