sharpest aperture for any given lens
Apr 28, 2012

so i hear a lot of people say not so shoot wide open, and i also hear shooting at F5 or F6 is very sharp for the average lens. but, what if your lens is at f5 wide open? is it a certain number of stops below wide open, or just a certain aperture? im assuming there is variation depending on the lens, but im also guessing there r many lenses that share similar numbers. im going to end up doing a test for this on each of my lenses, what do u guys think?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-F5
