    wide open. no point buying f1.4 and f2.8 lenses to shoot at f/8.

    I like f22 and f32 (or the smallest aperture on my lens) when shooting landscape. It offers me great dof.

    No favourite. I think most photographers choose apertures according to situation.

    For me:

    Group shots, f/5.6 to f/8
    Portraits, wide open.
    Landscapes, f/8 to f/11
    Lazy days, switch to P mode and let camera select for me.

    How come you use a slower lens indoors and a faster lens outdoors?

    Don't read too much into it man. There's really no such thing as a "favourite" aperture setting, only appropriate aperture settings for different situation.

    Still not enough leh It should be in vertical holding and manual focusing with very fast shooting to avoid light differences in very short period of time.add 1/4 overlapping each shoot.
