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.

comment Does a specific f number across all lenses denote same amount of light?
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.

There are places that print on wood now as well. woodsnap.com

comment Could the Nikon V1 be a good camera for sports photography?
Using the adapter, you can put on any Nikkor AF Glass. With the 2.7x crop, your 70-200 f/2.8 becomes a 540mm 2.8!

comment Is there a “sweep style” iPhone app that mimics the new Sony compact camera technique?
You should add that the feature is now part of iOS 6, so it's built-in.

comment D600 vs D700 for a portrait photographer
Doesn't the increased pixel density expose lower quality lenses? I've read many reviews, especially of the D7000, where lens quality was especially important, as well as technique, to get better images compared to previous lower density chips.

comment What is the difference between shooting with different (but similar in quality) lenses at same focal length?
I think you are looking for image quality/sharpness/rendering and less about focal length change, correct? All of these answers so far are examining focal length difference between the 2 lenses based on focus breathing, quality control, etc and I don't feel this is the thrust of the question.

comment What options are there for good, cheap online backup of photos?
I use crashplan, unlimited backups + you can backup to other computers, friends machines, servers, etc at the same time. But the big selling point is the "seed service" where they send you a hard drive to fill up and you mail it back. Much better than waiting for months for your data to get to their servers.

comment Why can't my SLR autofocus on certain parts of a scene?
Don't forget, that if you are using the outer focus points, they are not cross-type and can have a harder time focusing on objects that aren't in line with the sensor.

comment Is the angle of view actually different on APS-C?
Got it. The "Full Frame Equivalent" conversion never sat right with me. But I see what you're saying about "Angle of View", makes sense. thanks

comment Why does a Leica camera cost so much?
@nwcs you should temper that comment. The small point/shoot models are rebranded Panasonic Lumix - but not the M, S, or X series

comment What makes the Nikon 1 V1 different from Nikon's existing DSLRs?
With the adapter, you'll have access to lenses that come out to 540mm at 2.8 (70-200 2.8 + 2.7 crop factor)! For some wildlife photography, this could be a great tool not currently available. Wide angle is the limiting issue - even the 10mm dx on the adapter becomes a 27mm, but it's tiny sensor also gives amazing depth of field if you want everything in focus - useful for landscapes.

comment Noisy images from Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
As stated, please post a picture from when you thought the images were cleaner, and then a more recent image that you believe to be noisy. Include EXIF data on both, please.
