michaelb has done a few comparisons with the 5d and 40d. if you do a search they shouldnt be too hard to find.
Here's the thread: http://www.dcresource.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38138
Great, now I want a FF. But in terms of lenses, I think it's going to have to wait! ughhhh
yep, also notice the OOF areas are smoother. and the highlight bokeh in particular, (top right frame), is larger, smoother and far less apparent in the frame.
I thought we'd put this one to bed. dr4gon, don't be fooled by this load of nonsense.
Take two different bodies and two different zooms; set one to roughly 55mm and the other to roughly 88mm; choose different apertures for good measure and do a comparison.
I hope that nobody here is surprised to see that the results are not quite the same. And of course the Bokeh is different, how would it not be with two different lenses?
The last post in that thread (#13 michaelb) demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of the mechanics of DOF.
Same focal length and same distance using FF and APSC cameras; zoom in on the FF to get a head shot (similar FOV) and surprise, surprise the DOF is shallower.
that does not address the fact that the pixel density is alot less on a larger sensor. the bokeh IS different usign the exact same lens. i have used my lens' with both cos i have OWNED both...what the hell would i know i suppose. lol
So yes, the A700 and A900 are different. But the A900's crop and A900's full 24.6MP are the same in the center because it's a straight crop of the main image to eliminate the vignette.
I knew you had it pegged the last time. That other thread is just a distraction comparing apples with oranges.
So you've just spent a load of dosh upgrading to a FF camera with a more sensitive sensor and "there are some small differences"; I hope so.
Absolutely the DOF (and therefore the Bokeh) of the 50mm f1.4 on your FF D700 will be different when it's on the APS-C D300; how could it be otherwise?
If you want the DOF to be the same (why would you?) you'll have move your feet until the magnification is exactly the same and you'll have to be accurate to a fraction of an inch. Don't know how you'll manage that.
