It's not a game and sorry to hear this setup beats that. The difference is more related to perspective, not the technical stuff, and it would take some time to note. The easy way to find out is you try with 24-70/105 on FF during the half of reception and 17-55 on cropped the other half. I still like to use 7D/17-55 during reception to capture moment like bouquet tossing.


not a problem. wasn't a game. I was using "beat" -- to mean "my priority of what is better for me"

if I can move my feet, then I'll use my 50 f1.4 and 100L

using multiple bodies often means one can use a fast prime vs zoom

an f2.8 zoom on a crop camera gives a doF of f4.5 which isn't the best "perspective" imo for blurring backdrop. I'd rather stay with the FF equivalent of f1.2-f2.8 for backdrop blur reasons and to remove clutter and to use lower iso's for less noise
