    Jason Brunner, that is maybe the first time I see my whole name typed on this forum and I must say I am honored. I never liked being called "Ari" but I understand the difficulties of spelling 28 letters. Thank you.

    My favourites are my 35mm f2, and 50mm f1.4 for street, and if one of my subjects who is bigger and younger than I am tries to stick my camera "where the Sun don't shine" they won't be as painful as a telephoto.

    Just as an aside, Harry Callahan did a beautiful series of street photographs of women in close-up using a long lens - my point echoing that of Arigram's, that it's not the size of the lens that matters but the use of its characteristics in order to realize your ideas.

    Wasn't it Harry Callahan who used a Smith and Wesson .44 Magnum for his street shooting ?

    200mm? hmm where is he hiding in the bushes somewhere? Guess Cartier Bresson, Frielander and Winogrand were wrong!

    I dunno...ask most women these days, most would rather be shot with a long lens then a short one.....
    Coming back home to my film roots. Canon EOS-3 SLR, Canon EOS 1V SLR, 580ex flash, and 5D DSLR shooter. Prime lens only shooter.

    I've done some street stuff with my 180mm , I did it with pretty much every focal lenght along the range. 20,24,28,35,50,85,17-35,28-105 and 180mm, what's best, what's worst? Everything is fine if it works for you, street photo with a tele is rather interesting, it's more of a sniper aproach, gives you the confort of distance and invisibility, it's also nice for your subject matter, since you are not there in their face with a flash blasting at their eyes and a optic pointed at their face, it's just another way to do the job, it works, believe me.

    Yup - a S&W Model 29 with an 8 1/2" barrel. There was a movie where ole "Dirty Harry" used an 11 3/4" barrel, but was a chromed version and seemed rather ungainly - despite obvious gains in velocity and resultant boosts in kinetic energy. However, i digress...
