| p.26 #3 · The Nikon 200mm f/2 Thread - part 2 |
I am a new owner of the VRII, and looking around the web I noticed something curious.
There are a lot of images shot at f2.2 instead of f2.
Why is this?
Does the lens perform better at f2.2?
Do people need the extra bit of DOF?
Does maximum aperture change based on subject distance?
Yes, yes and no. It's performance at f/2 is superb but there are plenty of reasons to stop down. That last reason only happens with macro lenses as far as I know.
