    Never argue with a fool. This is even better than the "4/3's is its own form- factor" thread.

    Is it bad that I find this hilarious?

    Razr, assuming you do own the DSLRs you name, how about moseying over to wherever you keep them and popping a variable aperture lens on one, setting it to your precious aperture-priority or manual mode, and checking it for yourself? No doubt you'll feel violated when your f/2.8 aperture setting somehow breaks the "law of Av photography" (just where did that law originate?) by changing on its own to f/4.5. Then again, better not, since you may be freaked out by your apparently possessed camera, and sustain a heart attack.

    Amen to that, brother. Which is why it is so appealing.

    Take the f2.8-4.5 lens as an example, and in Av or S

    Which tells me me you are unaware that "S" (shutter priority) freezes the shutter and allows/forces the aperture to balance the exposure.
    And "A" (Av) freezes the aperture, forcing the shutter to balance the exposure.
    mode you put it to max F2.8. Then on full zoom of course the aperture can close down to 4.5.
    Only if in "P" or "S" modes. Otherwise, in Av and full manual mode, the aperture (by defintion in those modes) is locked in place.

    One thing can interfere with the law of photography: The law of PHYSICS, ie. Lens design.
    The "lens design" is merely a tube with glass optics that allow light to pass through, whereupon the light is modifed by shutter/aperture/timer settings.

    it doesn't matter if it is a manual lens or not. just like it doesn;t matter if its in Av or M mode.

    Razr is not the thread topic.

    Ahh, but Razr is the only one I know of who can purvey just such a topic as this.

    And you'll notice that everything in my post but what you quoted was on topic.

    Please post the exact statement and post# where I said so.

    Of course you won't find it.

    the lens has no bearing on the shutter speed so it's not relevant in the slightest to this discussion.

    if the lens is just a tube with some glass in it what regulates the amount of light passing from the front of the lens to the rear element and ultimately the camera ? ie: where exactly are the aperture blades located ? or is that just an electronic figment of our imagination ?

    you simply cannot admit your wrong which makes you so much more foolish.

    every post you've made makes that statement.

    That's right. Saying that a 17-70 f2.8-4.5 lens can be shot at f2.8 at 70mm is saying that the lens can be shot wider than it's maximum aperture.
