...purest form of focal length when it comes to taking photos...I've been told countless times that everything just looks correct and natural as it would to the human eye..for street or walkabout photography it is awesome and it encourages you to work for the perfect frame instead of zooming in and out with a zoom lens..recently I've taken to street or walkabout photography and I was wondering if I should try shooting with one...
Not wanting this to go into a "zoom vs prime" discussion..I have the al-cheapo 50mm f1.8 and it makes for quite good portrait lens on my cropped 50D..tried some outdoor shots and I find it ok though I din think it was a revelation that I was told it to be..the thing is..being on cropped sensor..the 50mm would then be 80mm for me so it would be somewhat longer than on FF sensor..so should I have been using a 28mm or 35mm instead since it brings me closer to having 50mm on FF(44.8mm/63mm)?
I also have a 17-50mm f2.8 that I generally use for the ease of taking photos during a gathering or event..even though this range more or less covers the 28mm to 50mm..I still dun mind getting a prime lens to try out whilst just walking around taking photos..
So what do you guys think? Stick to the 17-50mm since it covers the focal lengths or try out a prime? I may go rent one and try out 1st before I decide..however..sticking to the philosophy..should I go for a 28mm or 35mm since I'm on cropped?
