Re: Depth of Field

You've brought up something that lot of people who are jumping on the bandwagon who think that buying a (typically) 50mm lens with a f/1.8 or 1.4 maximum aperture is the answer to hand-holding their cameras. The fact of the matter is that in the vast majority of shooting situations, you're going to want to stop down quite a bit from wide open, so the extreme maximum aperture largely becomes a moot point.

But you're asked a good question, and some of the answers have been very good, so it's been a good learning experience.
