    I also found the 50 mm lens very useful.
    I found other lenses very useful too.


    But i still wonder, would you who like to take a leaf out of Cartier Bresson's book rather have a fixed focal length 50 mm lens, or a 50 - 50 mm zoom lens?

    Huh? Is this a trick question?

    It's the "50-50 zoom lens" part that I don't quite follow.

    Personally, I prefer a "20-20" zoom lens, much sharper!

    I'm old. I don't like to carry a lot of weight. A 50mm lens can go a long way.

    I prefer the 20 mm fixed. Don't like extreme wide zooms anyway, make you dizzy when you zoom from 20 mm to 20 mm.

    But give me a 100 mm - 100 mm zoom. Much better than a 100 mm.
    And i'm sure there was a photographer at some time somewhere who only used a 100 mm lens (though i'm not quite sure whether it was a "Prime or Zoom").
