So if you want something close to a 50mm lens on crop sensors for full frame 85mm isn't exactly the same especially at close focus distances

Your "isn't exactly the same" comment is so vague and open-ended that it is a whole supermarket full of cans of worms, actually.

Now you can go on, rent some of them and compare the results. For yourself... For the pictures toni-A posted a smartphone will do as well.

Well I was just notifying him that things other than DOF would differ between APS-C and full frame and almost all 85mm primes have MFD around 85cm, which at least for me isn't enough
