just nice, 1 stop above my max of f2.8 and good sharpness from this stop.
Shoot bikini gals F1.4 to avoid hand shake.
Shoot old women F16 because no hand shake.
This is actually a very interesting poll...I'm surprised so many shoot at f2.8 and f2. Thought the newer crowd uses only zooms these days. Must be some serious prime lens users in this forum. That makes me
[QUOTE=catchlights;2936710]when I shoot pinhole, I use f223, f415,
when I shoot products in studio, I use f45,QUOTE]
Benjamin, pardon my ignorance. What format is this? Med or Large?
ya, why no f/1.2....
I want f0.9
if u're talking about f/1.8, yes, because the larger aperture allows faster shutter speeds which can reduce (not eliminate) the effects of handshake..
do note also that the focal length affects the effects of handshake, so u can only compare at 50mm.. at 18mm the effects of handshake will be much less than at 135mm (think about the angle of view and how a slight shift in the camera can move the image much further on a telephoto)
