Would you lose too much FOV using it on a DX body?

Well never used that lens but the normal 85mm 1.8 or 1.4 lens a really good on a dx body they give you a super fast 122mm FoV lens with great bokeh!

You may not get the blur they advertise. When I got a lens for that affect, it wasnt as good on my D200 as my F4. So, you might want to send them an email and ask them for sure.

Thanks, Dennis.

I personally would opt for the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G lens which costs in the region of what the Lensbaby does.

 

Just my thoughts!

That lens is on my shortlist, But I need a good zoom first. My FX 50 mm f1.8 is essentially a 75 mm f1.8 on my 3300
