I've been wanting to do a comparison test between the D40 with the 18-55 mm (the supplied kit lens) and with the VR 18-200 mm (the nec plus ultra
of amateur zooms).
I'm planning to shoot a siemens-star. For this, I have a DIN A3 print (297 x 420 mm or 11.7 x 16.5 in).
However, I don't really know what settings to use, in order to make the results useful. These settings would be the focal lengths, f numbers and distance from the siemens-star.
So, I'd like to ask those of you who are more experienced, for a few hints. Also, if you'd like to add something I've forgotten to ask, please do so.
