I use DX format Nikon D7000 with Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S. I shoot food and tabletop products mostly.
And here is my problem. In my shots I loose DOF as I close to the subject naturally and I don't like stopping down to f22 or f32 due to diffraction.
Generally I shot from a distance of 50-60 cm to fill coffee cup in the frame. Not much closer macros.
I would like to know which one of the following is the best choice for my case.
- Buying a Nikon PC-E 85mm to use on existing D7000 and able to get higher DOF with wider apertures without diffraction problem
- Buying a Nikon D800 to use with my existing Macro Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S
(To have sharper edges and less diffraction on full frame with higher f stops like f16 or f22 as well as shooting farther to get more DOF and cropping in post production)
If your answer is to get a Tilt-Shift Lens then will I have difficulty about the tilt movements due to small DX format on my D7000?
