The latest in a series of stupid beginner questions:
Is there any advantage to putting a lens of one maximum aperture on a shutter th at has a larger maximum aperture? My understanding is that the maximum aperture of a lens is set by its design, and that a shutter with a larger maximum apertur e is capable of delivering that aperture only to a lens designed for the larger aperture. OTOH, someone told me that I'd get a brighter view if I put my f8 lens on a f4.7 shutter. So what's the truth?
Thanks in advance. David
