DOF on wide angle lens prime lens
Jul 29, 2014


I would like to hear your opinion and experiences on various wide angle prime lens.

Currently I have D7000 with 35 mm 1.8g Nikkor.

I would like to have the best possible bokeh and short DOF with wide angle prime. If I have subject for example 3 meters from me (half body + some background) with 35mm I have bokeh and DOF for example A.

But what about 20mm 2,8 nikkor when I go closer to subject for same angle or 28mm 1,8g where I go closer to subject and have faster len.

So what lens will have shorter DOF and better bokeh with same angle and lowest possible f stop? I think it would be 28 mm 1,8g, then 35mm and then 20mm.

My second questions is: is it worth to buy 50 mm 1.8 g for portraits if I have 35 mm 1.8g or effect is same when I get closer with 35 mm len for same FOV?

Thank you very much.
