  • You are correct, so long as the ratio is refering to the aperture of the lens. 1:2 is F2 1:1.2 is F1.2 The ratio on a lens could also refer to the Macro capability as well. For example the F2.8 ...
  • So is 80mm @ f2.8 still too long? While you rarely goto 140mm, seems like 80mm is very useful on the 80-200, and you get the greater light gathering capability of what is still recognised as an ...

    There are a range of approaches to white balance - and Dan's question here is very pertinent - do you shoot raw or JPEG? I shoot RAW and therefore view white balance 'in camera' a lower priority, ...
