Crop mode and perspective
« on: February 11, 2023, 08:51:36 AM »
Guys, I've a really dumb question: I know that crop mode is superior in terms of aliasing (and resolution), but how do you feel, artistically speaking, about the fact that it compresses the perspective (when using a shorter, but cropped, focal length lens at the same shooting distance)?

Sorry. This has been discussed a lot and you are wrong.

Perspective depends on distance only. Take a pic with 55 mm and another at 18 (same aperture, same distance). Now crop second pic to "55 mm" dimensions and compare. They are identical.

Only exception: Volumetric distortions near borders of an ultra-wide.
