I would assume the images on the left are from 85 1.8 simply because it's softer, as 85L stopped down to f1.8 should be sharper.
I like the way you think.
OK, I know we've been talking shots at 1.8 v/s shots at 1.8, but I still want to channel Nigel from Spinal Tap and say
The number goes to 1.2. Look, right across the board, 1.2...
Oh, I see. And most lenses go up to 1.8?
Does that mean it's faster? Is it any faster?
Well, it's one stop faster, isn't it? It's not 1.8. You see, most blokes, you know, will be shooting at 1.8. You're on 1.8 here, all the way open, all the way open, all the way open, you're on 1.8 on your camera. Where can you go from there? Where?
I don't know.
Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Put it up to 1.2.
1.2. Exactly. One faster.
Why don't you just make 1.8 faster and make 1.8 be the top number and make that a little faster?
[pause] This goes to 1.2.
