Not sure if this was a lens question or lights, think it fits here? If not please move
I know this may sound like a dumb question but I just came back from a local workshop and working out the lighting they had figured it was set up for ISO100 125th @f/5.6. I started shooting and was getting the blinkies of things being blown out and was quite hot. So I dropped down to F8 and things seemed to mellow out. When I verified what they set it up for I was told that being I was shooting with a 2.8 lens (24-70 f2.8) my settings would be off. I asked isnt F8 "f8" no matter what, 2.8 may help me focus faster but shouldn't make any difference then that right?
so yea, if I have a 85mm f/1.2 lens @F8 and a 85mm f/5.6 (if there is such a thing) @F8 they should be the same right?
Ive always thought that if it meters F8 who cares what lens it is and just want to see if ive been misunderstanding this entire time or not
