Re: Do you feel that there would actually be an improvement if you go FF?

Hi Sfa,

Yes I have and it looks like an absolutely fantastic lens. But... 18mm on the K5 is not as wide as 24mm on a Nikon FF, and f/1.8 on APS-C is also not going to get me the same subject isolation at 18mm as that other lens will. It will basically be "half the magic" of what I'm looking for. And I've also scrutinized that Sigma lense's bokeh in all the samples I could get my eyes on. My conclusion? Phenomenal at 35mm, pedestrian at 18.

Still -- it's definitely a more sensible route from the bank account's perspective.
