Re: Why do wide angle lenses have f1.4?

Thank you for your answers.

so for low light situations a wide aperture of f1.4 would be good at achieving a low iso but, with having such a wide open aperture at f1.4 this wouldn't be good for a night time landscape shoot due to shallow depth of field.

So the draw back of having a nice wide open aperture is you will have only a small portion of the image in focus?

Thanks,

Paul
