Hey,

I'm shooting daylight exteriors this weekend, I am wondering what is an optimum T-stop to work with on these lenses, and a generally good f-stop to work with for exterior shooting

the Kit contains:

Mk 2 super speeds: 9.5, 12, 50
Mk 3 super speeds: 25
Zeiss zoom: 11 - 110

I am pretty good with exposures, but if i can enhance the image by anyway possible.

thanking all

Hi,

The Zeiss primes are very good from 2.8, I guess optimium would be about 5.6.
The original 10-100 T2 zoom was always very good too, conversions vary slightly in quality.
