Asked by: Sujith
Your camera sensor is smaller the the lenses, so you will have no issue on using it. Your camera will work as it was using a 85mm-ish not 'cause of the lens, but cause of the sensor on it. Will work all right, but the image will be tight than if you use this lense in a full frame camera.
