Hey,

Shot this weekend on the SRII with some nice Zeiss Distagon lenses. I primarily used a 16, 25, and 50. The 16 and 25 opened to a f1.3, which is great but only, closed up to an f11. My concern is on exteriors we shot. We were using 7205 250D rated at an ASA of 200 with and ND 9 in. On some shots my reading went up to a split between a f32-f45, which would mean with the ND a split between an f11 and f16. But since I could only close to an 11 does that mean I'm half to a full stop over.

Possibly, but half to one stop over isn't going to kill you.

Phil's right. You will be fine in terms of exposure. Thos lenses however, are FAR from their best optically at that F stop.

I know. It kind of (for the lack of a better term) sucked. I didn't want to add more glass plus when i put an ND .6 in with the ND .9 the viewfinder was real dark. Most of the time we were at an F 8 or split between 8 and 11. That does lead me to a question though, when wide open or closed down on a lens it really kills the optical resolution? I've read about it and understand but how much of a difference can one tell.
