Re: What focal length to use for hyperfocal distance with FX lens on DX body...

Thank you for your input everyone. I didn't think to take into account the circle of confisuion size. This does make quite a difference. For instance the hyperfocal distance for 24mm at f/4:

Full frame: = 15' 10"

Cropped sensor = 23' 8"

I'll be sure to enter a circle of confusion size of .30 (in my spreadsheet) or just choose a full-frame camera (like a Nikon D800) for an online calculator.
