The focal length feels off compared to what I'm used to seeing in the viewfinder of an actual camera, so I decided...

PS. I should probably add that I use Daz Studio 4.9.2.70, Reality 4.3.0.16155 and LuxRender 1.5.0 build 15241

UltraScatter Advanced Instancing

I recently bought this: http://www.daz3d.com/ultrascatter-advanced-instancing-for-daz-studio It looked like a great way to manage Daz studio's instancing, which has always been kind of a mess.
