You do realize that the equivalent f stop is like 1.5-1.6 on that f2 lens. Like a 2.8 lens on a 7D gives the DOF on a 4.5 lens on full frame, the medium format goes the other way. What is the crop factor there like .8?
yup yup yup... it's .79. 85 F1.4 will still beat it but the DOF benefits do favor the 35mm format w/ F1.4 glass and so far nothing would come close to a 35mm format and 200/2 lens but the benefit from moving to MF (medium format) is not in itself for the DOF.... you get a different pop with the MF more 3D natural like but the major benefits apart from detail would be the dynamic range and overall color tonal rendition.
Ya I'm real familiar w/ all the perks and such w/ the MF format. I could buy into it... it's attractive... but I go from dance recitals where I'm bouncing around ISO 1600-12,800 to kids sports, birthday parties, travel, school plays... I'm regularly in low light at the 1/640-1/1000 shutter range and REGARDLESS OF DOF exposure is still exposure and I shoot F1.4 and higher shutter in natural light.... or I need a really good TTL Flash setup and I need speed. The 7FPS is minimum for me from the 5D4... I'm more of an 10fps kinda guy but the Fuji or others are only like what 3fps? What about battery life?... I continually will shoot 700-900+ on a single battery and thats w/ alot of dpaf video clips too. oh video... I been shooting 4K w/ DPAF on the 5D4... which means I get frame grab too for casual sharing.
I mean... sure the MF is all spiffy and such for all you "real" photographers out there but I'm just a dad and have been blessed with 1st... a wonderful family and 2nd... the amazing 5D4 that fits my families needs.
oh... and the lenses are really boring.
My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....
