I have a noob question to ask you guys...
5 months ago

Let's say I used an 85mm lens standing farther away to shoot a person to get the same field of view as a wider angle lens at 17mm at a closer distance (is it even possible?), will the subject shot with the 85mm be as sharp vs if the shot at 17mm?
I'm deciding if i should get a wider angle lens in 17-50mm. Right now i shoot with a sigma 70-200 2.8 OS and nikon 50mm F/1.8G. I usually do portraits with tight framing. I want to include more of the background now, but standing back 20 yards to include more of the background leaves my subject not so sharp even if i nailed the focus and steady as a rock shooting using the sharpest aperture.
I do not have sample pictures to show, but i'm sure you guys know what i'm asking...
