Thank you, so much for this amazing chart, it’s the most clear and complete I ever see, very usefull.
You are quite welcome, Miguel.
I’m glad you find it useful.
1/3 f/stops have always presented a problem for me, your chart is missing silver bullet. Thanks
Sorry, should have said “the” missing bullet.
No problem, Gary. I’m glad that you find it useful.
Thanks for the feedback,
I downloaded and printed the chart. Much appreciated. It’s very useful.
I have a query: What is the f/stop difference between 3.5 – 4.5? I’m sure I should be able to figure this out but not sure. I know 2.8 – 4.0 is one stop. 4.0 to 5.6 is one stop so 3.5 – 4.5 must be less than one full stop. Is it a 1/2 to 3/4th stop difference?
Glad you find the chart useful.
The difference between 3.5 and 4.5 is 2/3’s of a stop.
You can use my chart to calculate this.
Going down the F-Stop Thirds column from 3.5, the next third is 4.0, and then the next is 4.5; thus it is 2 thirds down from 3.5
Hope this helps clarify.
very useful! i took the liberty to share the link to your page 🙂
Great. Glad it is useful for you, Kamrul.
IS THERE A REASON SOME LENS START WITH A ONE AND ONE THIRD DIFFERENCE. MY TOKINA 35MM-200MM STARTS AT 3.5 THEN THE NEXT STOPS IS 5.6 AND MY KONICA 52MM STARTS AT 1.8 AND THEN GOES TO 2.8. I CAN USE HALF STOPS ON THE 52MM LENS SO THE HALF STOP BETWEEN 1.8 AND 2.8 WOULD BE 2.2 IS THAT CORRECT? THANKS FOR THE CHART I LAMINATED IT SO I CAN KEEP IT IN MY BAG.
It’s mostly a design manufacturing issue. The manufacturer wants to get the largest maximum aperture at the least production costs.
So they squeak out a little more on the aperture, but can’t always make the control ring get a click stop at the in-between setting.
It’s not a big deal; many many lenses are that way.
Glad you find the chart helpful.
This is a wonderful, clear chart- thank you Ken!
Glad you like the chart.
It’s one of my little contributions to the common photo good.
Went into a mild panic when I lost my original “cheat sheet” of shutter speed math. Phew…. I was great to find this chart again in 2016! Thank you!!
And, thank you for writing.
This is the primary reason I keep this site up, so that people can find this resource I created.
Glad you find it useful.
Feel free to spread the link, so that people can come to the site also.
Came across this on google search for f stop chart.. seems there is an incorrect listing. The 1/3 stops between 1.0 & 1.4, should be 1.1 & 1.3
Best chart ever seen. It could only improve by starting at 50 ISO, because I don’t know a lot of people or cameras with lower ISO. Nowadays ISO goes further than 12500. But I’m being picky. Nice chart. Thanks.
Thanks, Karel. I’m glad you found it useful.
