Interesting comments on individual preferences for focal length. Two things I have picked up here and elsewhere:
- the predilection for using the short and long ends of zoom lenses, which I do myself
- a slight schism between those who prefer 28mm and those preferring 35mm: prevailing comments are that 28mm is for "pros" and 35mm for "laymen." Sorry, but I prefer 35mm, despite my earnest attempts to embrace the 28mm 1.8G and the 28mm 2.8 AI-s. Then again, I am certainly not a pro.
Anyway, I have made a bid on the 20 3.5AI-s offered by a fellow member. Thanks for...Show more →
Personally I feel the 35 is rather something for pros and the 28 for those who need a wider lens to get that sense of space in their captures.
The 35mm focal length is more versatile. If you move in close it can work like a 50mm. If you step back a bit it can do pretty much everything a 28 can do. You need to work harder to make the 35mm focal length work with you. The 28mm focal length is easier in that regard.
I guess I´m a "different zoomer". On my 80-200, which seems to be on my camera permanently these days, I find myself constantly framing my pictures between about 105mm and 170mm focal length. Even when I want to crop the frame tight I move to 200 then back off a bit.
