  • This guy in Havana is so stupid, that’s not the place to do droning. It’s a government zone, like in DC the Pentagon.

    Perspective and compression are a function of camera to subject distance, not focal length. Although depth of field would not be the same for the same aperture, your 42.5mm on a micro four thirds camera will produce the same compression as an 85mm on a full frame camera, if the subject to camera distance is the same. Enjoy your 42.5mm Frederick!

      Gustavo, you’re absolutely correct. I don’t know where my mind was on this one! I, like many photographers, was misinformed and only learned the correct reasoning around a year or two ago but my mind keeps reverting to old knowledge. I even did some tests to prove it to myself when I was faced with the new knowledge!

      One thing that focal length WILL affect, as you mention, is depth of field; the lens design itself will also have an impact on bokeh. Both important attributes for a portrait lens. All reports seem to state that this 42.5mm lens is awesome. 🙂

      Thanks very much for posting the correction!

        I understand exactly what you are saying! This is one of those photography concepts that are sort of counter intuitive and you keep forgetting them. I guess that is one of the reasons why photography is so interesting!
