    i wish to revote no longer f5.6 is my favourite...

    ever since i move on to primes, i like to shoot at f2 or f2.8 most of the time.

    Hi, f2.0/f2.8 for most purposes.

    Tough question, I don't have a single f/stop that I favor the most, but my favourite range is

    f/1.4-2 For low/available light shots (I use this a lot).

    f/8-11 For sunny outdoors as this is the sweet spot of most lenses.

    I don't usually use the smallest aperture unless shooting landscape or buildings. f/11 is enough to shoot big groups.

    kinda regretted getting tamron now, once i realise that i dun need so wide open so often. shld had gotten a 10-22mm.

    I use f/2.2, f/11 or f/16 most of the times. Not really favourite i guess? Its more like what environment and what i want in the image.

    I think Stanley Kubrik filmed 2000 Space Odyssey using a F/1.0 video camera.

    Then again, he's a little mad.

    so far i only done one event shoot and one wedding as backup both indoors, i shoot all at f4.

    i only shoot f2 or f2.8 outdoors with models or friends.

    yep. my style is to get the moment for events.
    due to limitations of my 450d, af isnt always spoton so i'll compensate by just making my aperture smaller

    i love f4, f5.6, f8

    somehow i cant stand soft images. if i shoot a person's face, f8 is something i like. details, details, more details...
