Just to get a feel, is the bokeh between f2.8 and f3.5 significant enough to justify an upgrade?
(sorry to TS for borrowing thread to discuss)
Thanks Cartman2000 for the reply.
Yep, f2.8 to f4 is a full one stop so f2.8 to f3.5 is only 2/3 of a stop.
As a newbie to DSLR without any shooting partners, I would attempt the following method and to learn (via the hard way):
Set the setting to P mode. Take the shot and observe the settings (speed, iso, aperture) inside the view finder choosen by camera. Then switch to manual mode. Play around aperture settings -- increasing or decrease from the auto selected value. Take a series of photos.
After upload the pic to PC, the software to edit can display under photo properties what settings you have chosen for each individual photos. Based on the quality of photo you like, then remember that setting by writing down in handphone or notebook -use as reference next time photo shoot.
Not sure this will work or not.
