My Sigma 50 1.4... I like the normal perspective :D and being able to walk indoors and still not have to switch lenses

How's a 50mm lens 'normal perspective' on a T2i?

The qualities of a 50mm are that it neither really magnifies nor distorts so even on a crop body, I'd still consider it "normal."

The physics of a lens don't change on a body to body basis.

Magnification and distortion aren't inherent to the glass.

An 8mm lens on a point-and-shoot might be a 'normal' lens - it gives you a similar angle of view to the human eye, without significant distortion or magnification. Same with 80mm on medium format. Stick an 8mm lens on a full-frame camera, on the other hand, and you'd have an ultra-wide lens with significant perspective distortion towards the edges.

By putting the 8mm lens on the point-and-shoot, you're only using the central part of the image circle - i.e. a narrower angle of view, using the part of the image with no significant perspective distortion. By putting the full-frame body on the 80mm MF lens, you're also using only the central part of the image circle, giving a narrower angle of view (and effective 'magnification') than what would be considered 'normal'. Same with putting a 50mm lens on a crop body.

Canon EF 28-105 II USM on a 20D body. A nice lens for the money. Photo attached taken with this lens. Should have used my monopod for this pic.

Might want to look again...

Middle picture is a toy and the bottom half of the list says "Past Equipment."

However, I'd believe $500K from selling all that past equipment! :lol:

Wow Jay I didn't mean to get your underwear in a knot, I was just stating that he didn't sell off all his stuff. Obviously they serve him well take a look at his photo's.
Awesome works!
