Can I just in here with a question about shooting fireworks, please?
I've set up a custom mode for shooting tonight with my G3, following advice in other threads (MF, lens set to infinity, 2 s exposure at f8 — but I'm open to suggestions here too) and I've got my tripod ready. My question is which lens to use. I won't have big scenic vistas, as the fireworks will be shot over a town area of buildings and trees. Options are 14 mm, 14–45 mm, or 45 mm.
