The Importance of Lens Choice

 

I take a lot of my cues from cinema and in particular filmmakers using DSLR for their work. I don’t think it’s useful for me to tell someone to go out and by this lens or that lens because ultimately what you use will be a matter of the right tools to help achieve the expression that you want to share. Therefore what you choose to shoot with will be different than what I choose to shoot with.

Instead of going into detail explanations I think the substance of what I’m trying to share can be found in these videos:

More important than what the lens does is why you are using it again, Stillmotion gives a great explanation here:

Hope this provides some insight for you.
