Thread: What lens you'll bring to shoot in a crowded places?

  1. #1

    Default What lens you'll bring to shoot in a crowded places?

    Which lens you'll bring if you're shooting in a tight space places i.e exhibition, car show, anime show?

    Will you bring your 50mm,85mm,135mm prime lens or a zoom lens i.e 24-70mm ?

    The subject of interest would be mainly the people over there i.e the anime figure or the models.

    actually

    if you're afraid your good lenses will get knock or something

    why not a small prime (35 f/1.8 or 50 f/1.8) or your kit lens (18-55, 18-70)?

    24-70. easy to adjust FL. prime later too near or too far cannot switch or get away in time.

    i don't think TS is afraid of his lens getting knock by others.

    i wouldn't risk that lens out there in that kind of situation

    saw a guy with a D3 and 14-24 at the IT show this june

    someone forced his way thru and i think his lens got scratched

    saw his looking at his lens for quite a while...

    you want the real answer? are you sure?

    the real answer is neither to take photos, nor to see car

    it is to have xmm smiling at you. even then though, i cannot understand. even a xmm, even that, with a clean background is way more superior than a xmm against a sea of people.
