Even if you were outside a lot, it would depend on where you live, and the interesting part is that it's not always the sunny climes that get the highest vit D, though we would think they would, it has a lot to do with topography as well; I also read a bit which claimed that vit D can't be got through sitting in the sun behind glass either...interesting.

Interesting stuff in here.

Is there any Vitamin D supplement preference that is better than another?

This is an interesting read though someone else may shed a different light on it:

I live in Wyoming. I used to work in an office and I would catch every bug that came into town. But in 2006 I got a job working in the oil/gas field. I work outside all day 4 days a week (in and out of a truck), and I've been notably sick once in 6 years. I swear by viamin D by the sun. I've never suplimented my D, but when I started hearing the studies linking vitamin D to testosterone I'm considering it. There's more science to go, but here is one test.
Effect of vitamin D supplementation on testos... [Horm Metab Res. 2011] - PubMed - NCBI

I don't take a vitamin D supplement. I wonder if maybe I should though. I am outside sometimes during the day but probably not enough. It is probably something I need to be looking in to as well.
