Thread: Why do you like your normal lens?

    Default Why do you like your normal lens?

    Normal lens means 50mm on a full frame camera, and about 30mm on a crop body.

    Hmm....i didn't realized i was using abnormal lenses all this while......

    but back to your question, i guess it's because they mimic human's field of view...so looks more natural

    The 50mm field of view is usually said to be most similar to the human eyes' FOV.

    But why 35mm lenses are used on a crop factor body is because it gives an almost 50mm equivalent FOV as a 35mm FF camera.

    Aiyo, let's just say "standard" instead of "normal", shall we?

    Normal or standard refers to the size of the subject/object at a certain viewing distance
    of the subject/object from the human eye.

    You started a new thread that'll be discussing the same thing. What is your point in doing that? You could have just asked the same question in there.

    Anyway, any lens that allows me too shoot images with is a normal one. Those that don't are the abnormal ones.

    Normal means Standard.

    Normal lens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This question is about which standard lens is a good standard lens on a crop factor camera.

    "She" doesn't understand English, apparently.

    we have this thing against spamming... you are essentially posting the same question twice. for such offence, the usual penalty is de-registration. so, before you go shooting off your mouth, read this... http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/faqs-...terms-use.html
