Sturdy 30

Visit to the Botanic Garden

The angle-of-view of the 50mm lens on a full-frame camera (about 47 degrees) is still my favourite. It was Henri Cartier-Bresson's favourite as well. I'm not drawing a comparison – just saying.

Of course, in the world of APS-C and micro 4/3 cameras, that angle-of-view is achieved with a 33mm or 25mm, respectively. Because I can't afford full-frame cameras or their lenses, the "nifty 50" is, for me, the "sturdy 30." So my walk-around, "desert-island" lens is now an (APS-C) 35mm.

It's okay
