Max aperture of Canon 18-55 at intermediate focal length

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Michael A. Covington, Oct 23, 2004.

  1. Can someone who has a Canon 18-55/3.5-5.6 lens (the one bundled with the
    Dig. Rebel) answer a quick question for me?

    What is the maximum aperture at 34 mm or so? Is it f/3.5 (limited by lens
    element diameter) or is it something like f/4.5 (if max. aperture is
    linearly related to focal length)?

    At 35mm I'm getting a max aperture of f/4.5.

  3. Thanks. Sounds like it's a linear relationship.
