Is it possible to read the smallest F number of a zoom lens from the specification sheet?
I mean for the lens with varying largest aperture. :confused:

Usually at the two extreme focal lengths of the zoom. In between, I don't think it's stated. You have to find that out yourself.

eh? have mah - u check the system chart in Canon EOS website, they will list out all the specs from their list of lens. Usually the prime lenses will have bigger min aperture. Alternatively try it on a cam is the fastest way to go.

Not necessary...Canon's prime lens have a minimum aperture range between f/1.0 and f/5.6
