RDF Question: just need to reference the parent class for domain?

domain rdf
Consider this RDF Schema definition:

<?xml version="1.0"?> 
<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf=?http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#?
      <rdfs:Class rdf:ID=?Camera?>
      <rdfs:Class rdf:ID=?SLR?>
            <rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource=?#Camera?/>
      <rdf:Property ID=?f-stop?>
            <rdfs:domain rdf:resource=?#Camera?/>
            <rdfs:domain rdf:resource=?#SLR?/>
            <rdfs:range rdf:resource=?...#Real?/>

Note that SLR is a subClass of Camera.  In the definition of the f-stop
property I indicate what domains the property may be used in - Camera
and SLR.  My question is this: since SLR is a subclass of Camera then
can I omit the second domain property, i.e., just use:

      <rdf:Property ID=?f-stop?>
            <rdfs:domain rdf:resource=?#Camera?/>
            <rdfs:range rdf:resource=?...#Real?/>

f-stop can be used in any sublasses of Camera and I don't have to
specify all the subclasses that it may be used in.  Correct?  /Roger
