Hmm, after shooting my 7 on Ektar 100 last week, I'm not sure I need an 850/900. Most of my shots on my fast primes were OOF due to too much aperture and too little DOF. Will this continue on digital, or will I be able to shoot more shots to compensate?
I figure there's not much point in learning to stop down, because then I really haven't bought much performance over my A700. I don't need the pixels, and I haven't gained much if any lowlight performance.
I seem to have missed more shots than I do with medium format, which I attribute to the generally smaller aperture on those lenses. Having a f/1.4 prime on FF seems like a tantalizing recipe for disaster.
Did anyone else get bit by shooting f/2.8 and below when they went FF? If so, how did you deal with it?
PS. My beercan seemed to work REALLY well on Ektar. It didn't seem to suffer from the normally low contrast I seem to get on my A700.
