    This is the 35mm forum boys! Most 35mm camera lenses don't go beyond f22 except for some macro lenses and a few telephotos. So lets try and keep this on track, ok.

    If your favorite f stop isn't listed just pick the closest one (lets not get picky). Also I could only use 10 options so I had to limit the number of f stops.

    I knew of a photographer who's motto was "Shoot at 5.6, you'll always get an image".

    APUG does not revolve around 35mm alone.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I chose f/4.5. I shoot MF rangefinders and not being able to see depth of field sometimes it's fun to be surprised by shots taken near wide open. So for me, I'd go f/4. Love the bokeh!

    What I think he's saying is that this forum in APUG is under English>Equipment>35mm Cameras and Accessories.

    f/8 if I was stuck at one thing. I mean it's like fate or something.

    I often shoot wide open, in available light, at night. I like fast lenses (f1:1.4) and monopods. I am not reluctant to use shutter speeds of 1/4 or 1/2 second, to get an image.
