It's still a 98mm lens, though. It will be a 98mm lens on any camera, crop factor has nothing to do with it. A medium 50mm on a red is still a 50mm and will give the same approximate field of view. You may only be using the center of the lens but it's still a 50mm.
take a look at: http://blog.abelcine.com/2010/05/14/...ens-is-a-lens/
I assume we're referring to an older 200/2 AI-s and not the modern AF-S?
I have no experience with that lens, but for whatever it's worth the modern one is absolute magic.
When people say a 50mm is a 50mm is a 50mm, they are talking about the mechanics of the lens itself - not the field of view or crop factor (which vary among cameras/sensors).
One more for Nikon 200 f2.
Its gorgeous and sharp even wide open.
Matches cookes nicely.
depends, do you want to do a closeup of your talent at 60 feet away from you or 100 feet away from you hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Sorry - couldn't help myself.
I have a zeiss 180/2.8 that was designed to cover medium format that was converted to PL. It has the same field of view as my 180/2.8 nikon on my epic. It's a 180mm and will always be a 180mm.
200mm nikon f/2 is still a great lens though.
