Actually, at maximum aperture, your lens likely does not behave at its best. A wide aperture will get you various image defects like blur, chromatic aberration, distortions etc. Likewise, a narrow aperture like f/25 will suffer ...

If you are interested in the artistic side of photograph, experimenting with different setting just to see what effect they have on the photograph makes sense. However, if it is just too time ...

In M and shutter priority modes, Fuji is allowing the faster ...
