The Fullframe Decision

Another presumed advantage of using full-frame lenses on APS-C cameras is that the smaller sensor is using only the central sweet spot of the image circle, thereby providing sharper images with less light falloff at the edges. In Pop Photo Lab tests, though, the sweet spot is proving a mythical beast. It may have held true for older legacy lenses, but we now see very similar SQF numbers for full-frame lenses tested at full-frame and APS-C sizes. And the better digital-only lenses perform on a...

The 40D is very useful for my long lens my 70-200mm during the wedding ceremony, she says. I may be off to the side, or in the back of the church, depending on the restrictions, and I can get even closer on faces with the crop...
