    I shoot a lot of MF so if I am going to paint myself into a corner with 35mm it's an easy choice. You didn't say we couldn't use filters and such to "simulate" DOF effects, and I guess it would be a good excuse to learn some alternative ways of achieving effects that you normally would use the f/stop to get.

    I think something constructive may come out of this thread, I am going to go home and construct one of those piece of window screen filters to make the lights in photo have the star-burst effect. Last year I got the Christmas tree that way using f/32, maybe this year there can be people in the photo as well.

    "Would you like it if someone that painted in oils told you that you were not making portraits because you were using a camera?"
    "Shouldn't it be more about the joy of producing and viewing the photo than what you paid for the camera?"

    I'd shoot f/11 for B&W film (ISO 400) and f/5.6 for color (ISO 100).
