For the same FOV there is approximately one stop difference, that is the 35 f1.4 on APS-C is approximately equivalent to a 50 f2 on a FF although they give the same FOV on their respective sensors.

so a rule of thumb, one stop.

You can start there as you develop muscle memory.

I was looking at some hyperfocal charts and for close focusing distance there seems to be more than 1 stop..... almost 2. I guess I can start with 1.

It's more like a stop and a third, through its kind of splitting hairs for DOF. F/4 x 1.5 (crop factor) = f/6
