OK - not a very nice answer.
Anyway what I really need to know is with my Miranda 75 - 200 lens - waht aperture should I start with - just as a general thing.
I have a choice of 22, 16 , 11, 8 and 5.6
As for waht I will be shooting general outdoor and some F1
Excuse me? I took the time to answer your question as best as I could despite the limited information that you provided and the rather inane nature of the question to begin with! There was nothing "not nice" about my answer and I was genuinely trying to be helpful!
Further, your follow-up reply reiterating which aperture you should start with clearly indicates a total lack of understanding of the fundamentals of photography...that is NOT an insult towards you in any way, it is simply a matter of fact. Everyone has to learn from ground zero (so to speak) so it is NOT a disparagement on you that you lack this knowledge right now. I'm simply pointing out that your question about aperture choices is synonymous with asking "what temperature should one cook at as a general thing"...there is NO correct answer for such a question just as there is NO correct answer for which aperture to use (as your question stated). I'm sorry if you feel that is "not nice", but I think you really need to start with 'photography 101' first so you can get a basic understanding of what are all those "numbers & switches", how they are relevant to each other, & how it effects a final photograph. This is not something that can be easily answered quickly in just a couple of paragraphs.
