Sorry if I've bunged this in the wrong place, but I can't think of where else to put it.
I've been looking at reviews of fuji digital bridge cameras as I've been considering getting a cheap S/H example of one of the discontinued finepix S-series. One set of reviews seem to imply that the lenses on at least some of them have a very narrow f-number range.
It's difficult to explain as I can't find the ruddy pages I saw this.
Anyway I'll have ago:
I'm used to the idea that a zoom lens's maximum aperture gets smaller as the focal length gets longer, eg f3.5 to f6.5.
But the reviews seems to imply that at the wide end, the range of apertures that can be used would be something like f3.5 to f6.5, NOT for example, f3.5 to f16, and at the long end would be something like f6.5 to f9, NOT for example, f6.5 to f16.
This is only an made up example, but shows what I think the articles mean.
have I got this correct? Do some digital cameras only have narrow useable f-number ranges?
