comment What are the advantages of leaving an ND filter on a lens at all times?
@DetlevCM Matt said effectively, he was using the 1/2xFPS "rule" for shooting cinematic film. Going faster reduces motion blur and starts to give a stuttering effect to motion

comment How can I get better focus results with my Nikon D90 at a fashion show?
On a D90, he may want to shoot for 1/320th or faster. 1/320th should nullify camera movement, anything faster will help with subject motion.

For further clarification. The Autofocus modes are AF-A (AF Auto) AF-S (AF Single), AF-C (AF Continuous), and MF (Manual Focus). AF-A tries to determine if it needs to be Continuous or not. In addition to AF drive type, there is different AF Point modes - which determine which AF points are used, and how the camera interprets the motion those points track. 3D falls into the AF Point Mode, while AF-C is an AF Drive Mode.

comment Does a specific f number across all lenses denote same amount of light?
For what it's worth, I don't use T-Stops in photography - but I would also never assume that 5.6 on one lens equals 5.6 on another. I'll swap lenses, re-meter, and then shoot.

comment Does a specific f number across all lenses denote same amount of light?
I actually tested this theory a couple of years back. There was a 1/3 to 2/3 stop variance between my lenses. The zooms at the long end of their range were the farthest off from the primes, or zooms at their shortest focal length. Maybe you don't care if shots are off by fractions of a stop - but that doesn't change the fact that same f stops do not equal same exposures. I am being pedantic, but I think that the more information people have, then they will be able to deduce what level of accuracy is sufficient. If I ask a question, I'd rather be over-informed than under.

You are welcome to edit it ;) but I don't see how my statement is wrong though possibly overly pedantic :). If a variance in exposure is allowable, then yes f stop to f stop will give you the same exposure. But if accuracy counts, f stop isn't good enough. An F Stop is much more like a theoretical max. Lower quality will be much darker at the same f stop. Them there is also the issue of low quality lenses that actually vignette so much that they get dimmer as you open them up.
