Interesting article about favouring a 50mm prime lens over short ‘standard’ zooms. I’ve wondered about doing this for a while — DSLR resolutions are high enough that a little post-production crop will barely be noticed, and the depth-of-field advantages of fast lenses are joyous.

I think my plan would be a 10-20 extreme wide zoom (probably Sigma’s, though the handling on low-end Nikons is less than ideal in my hands), a fast 30 or 50, and later a longish zoom or (maybe maybe) macro.

Ah, it’s nice to dream.

  1. I’m sold on the idea. I have always liked 50mm primes from my days shooting with my Dad’s old Voigtlander Vitoret.
