Thread: 50mm lens

  1. #1

    Default 50mm lens

    When they talk about DSLR's 35mm lens or 50mm lens? Are they talking about the diameter of the lens. And do most DSLR's have a 35mm . Some have 50mm?

    they are talking about the focal length of the lens

    these give the user different perspectives eg from 17mm all the way to 800mm .... and everything in between

    Sorry, I can't help but
    when you say 50mm refers to the diameter of the lens.

    Yes, there are 35mm and 50mm prime lenses.

    This is a very good video about lens

    This is Focal Length:



    The amount of "Zoom" you have.

    This is what you're always talking about, which is Filter Thread Diameter:
