Make Do

Much as I loved it, I no longer own this lens:

Instead., I own the 85mm f/1.2. More glass.

Why can I live without the 35mm? Because I have a crop camera too. And the 35mm f/1.4, which I also own, on the crop camera is very similar in effect and angle to the 50mm on a full frame camera.

And that is the point. I have:

  • 35mm f/1.4
  • 45mm f/1.2 T/S
  • 85mm f/1.2
  • 100mm f/2.8
  • 16-35 f/2.8
  • 24-70 f/2.8
  • 70-200 f/2.8

But that also means I have, approximately:

  • 55mm f/1.4
  • 72mm f/1.2 T/S
  • 135mm f/1.2
  • 160mm f/2.8
  • 26-55 f/2.8
  • 38-110 f/2.8
  • 110-320 f/2.8

So the total number of focal lengths I have:

  • 35mm
  • 45mm
  • 55mm (*)
  • 72mm(*)
  • 85mm
  • 100mm
  • 135mm(*)
  • 160mm(*)
  • 16-35
  • 24-70
  • 26-55(*)
  • 38-110(*)
  • 70-200
  • 110-320(*)

Michael's lenses (a few years back: now I have more)

So I have a very wide range of available focal lengths! If you have two crop factors, that is how you should look at your lenses. Making dfo with what you have is a great thing.

Yet another reason to own two cameras.
