How does 1.8 or a fast lens differ from an f/4?
That's about a tad 3 over stops faster.
It allows more ambient light in so that you can use a faster shutter speed.
the hole in the middle is bigger.
cant get more blunt then that.
you need to understand aperture. photo.net is a good place to start reading about photography
Bigger hole, more light, creamier bokeh.
Ok, I just wanted to make sure. I understand aperture. Just wanted clarify the faster part. Thanx guys.
but also a more shallow DOF. You need to be aware of your distance to your subject in relationship to your f#.
that sounded dirty
What did you count?
more like 2 and a third
unless f 2.8 is two stops bigger than f4
1.4 is the next full stop under 2, so 1.8 is like a third or something like mob said.
