Re: If shooting at f/22, is a fast 1.8 lens still considered fast?

Is a Porshe or Ferrari considered a fast car if driven 25 mph? Of course. I do not understand the question but; why f22? Maximum DOF? Don't know too many situations where f22 would be requied.

Restate your question for better response.
