XZ-1 depth-of-field test
Knight Palm --
You wrote -- f/5.01 on XZ-1 corresponds to f/22 on 35mm film -- and this is where I get confused. Back in 35mm film days, for landscape photography, I felt that f/22 was about as small an aperture as possible to safely avoid aperture distortion.
But if f/5 on the XZ-1 = f/22 on, say, my Nikon FG, then does f/8 on the XZ-1 = something impossible, like f/64 or f/128 on the old Nikon?
In practice, we have both found that the XZ-1's f/8 is just fine. Sharp, no problems, maximum depth-of-field. Guess I am confused about apertures. They are relative to each lens, then? Back in 35mm days, they were all sort of the same, less confusion.
Anyway, I'm going to assume that f/8 on the XZ-1 is best for landscape photography in daylight -- please let me know if I'm wrong!
