I use TV mode set to 100 most of the time. The light on the plants changes too fast to mess with anything -- I might, after the first shot. Even with a tripod and remote shutter trip, 100 is likely to be the slowest speed that will stop fluttering plant parts, given that the air here is usually moving. The difference in DOF is negligible so far as I can see and is more than made up for by the sharper picture. I'm more likely to have a problem with not blurring out the background than with DOF in the flower itself, unless I get greedy and try to get a quarter-inch flower filling the frame. (The Botany Photo of the Day for Sep 17 was taken wide open at 800! And it's as good a picture as I've ever seen, of that sort.) BPOD
