Re: Sunny 16 rule ... not optimal at 16?

Sunny 16 is just an easy to remember reference.  So long as from 1/100th ISO 100 and f/16 one nets any changed stops the exposure will be the same.  So 1/200th f/11 ISO 100 would work, 1/400th f/8 ISO 100 would work etc and all comply with the rule.  I'm not sure why so many people think that the only valid option is f/16.
