    lowest possible aperture value at the focal lengths (at 18mm it can go down to 3.5, at 200mm it can go down to 5.6)

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Maximum aperture doesn't change the way you might expect with focal length. The relevant values are: [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]18mm f/3.5
    24mm f/3.8
    35mm f/4.2
    50mm f/4.8
    70mm f/5
    135mm and higher f/5.6
