    Re: 90mm f8 vs 5.6

    The dark cloth is relevant because a good dark cloth should help your eyes adjust to the GG. The question is, with a good dark cloth and allowing eyes to adjust, is there a discernible difference...

    Yes, I'm familiar with Artemis, but saying that we must compose independently of the camera's ground glass is ridiculous.
