Moose recommends this lens so I'm confident it's a good product overall. My question is whether it would work well for my intended purpose, photographing model ships. Two questions:
1. With an aperture range of f/1.8 - f/22 would this lens provide sufficient control over depth of field to photograph a ship (either viewed in silhouette or stem-to-stern) and keep the entire model in focus?
2. If I want to get in close to photograph details, would this lens be any better than the stock lens that came with it (a D3100)?
Thanks for any help!
