Will the output of Nikon 24mm 1.4 on D7000 be very similar to the output of Nikon 35mm 1.4on D700?

If not, What would be some of the differences?

They wouldn't. The only thing similar would be the field of view and that's it.
The lenses and sensors will render the images differently.
Examples being image contrast, depth of field, color and sharpness.

I'm sure you already read about FOV and DOF, but I'll list the obvious things anyway. The D7000 sensor is almost 1.6x crop, so the 24/1.4 on D7000 produces similar FOV and DOF as would a 38 mm f/2.2 on D700. Everybody has different needs, but for me personally a 38/2.2 equivalent is not the hottest thing.

Something like 21mm f/0.9 on the D7000 would match the FOV and DOF of the 35/1.4 and D700 combo.

After these trivial differences there are questions about rendering, distortion, boke, flare resistance and so forth, which all require a bit deeper analysis.

Perhaps he is referring to the AIS 35/1.5 boke which can sometimes be busy or nervous. The AF-S 35/1.4G is from another millennium altogether.

The bokeh wide open from the 35mm f/1.4 AF-S can not match the bokeh from the 24mm f/1.4 AF-S - this is one of the very fine features from the 24mm.

Somebody should do the shot but If I had to guess, the 35 will have a more pleasing look because it will be able to compose a shot with a shallower DOF than doing it with the 24 on a DX body. Even if the bokeh isn't as good, it will separate subjects more and I suspect will look better. I'd really like to see somebody shoot the same subject with the same composition.

I thought this was an interesting question; and then seeing this post I wondered if there really was such a huge difference?

Not wanting to sound rude, but I wanted to check this out ... is the DoF, at f/1.4 on DX, equivalent to f/2.2 on FX?

Using Depth of Field Master; this is what I got ...

Using D3x, at 38mm, f/2.2
Near Limit is at 8.33 ft.
Far Limit is at 11.6 ft.


Using D7000, at 24mm, f/1.4
Near Limit is at 8.71 ft.
Far Limit is at 11.7 ft.


Seeing there is a slight difference, albeit they're pretty close, I tested the D3x at f/2.4 and got ...

Near Limit is at 8.71 ft.
Far Limit is at 11.7 ft.


I guess, from this it is clear; the Depth of Field of a 24mm at f/1.4 mounted on the D7000 is close to a 38mm at f/2.4 (or at f/2.2) mounted on a D3x.

Sorry for having doubted you, pforsell :); and thanks for that bit of information.
