Why is it when I go out taking a few pics I see some of the most inappropriate choices of lenses for the environments on offer?
One place that comes to mind is the Queen Victoria Market, workable focal lengths are 100mm and less, so why are so many 70-200mm zooms spotted, same with Melbourne's CBD.
The focal lengths that lens has to offer is not what I'd consider particulary useable unless one has a fetish to take acne or nasal hair pics. Add the mandatory herd of pedestrians getting in the way once the desired pic has been dialled in and things become a total waste of time.
Lets face it, in tight enviroms wider is sweeter for framing and getting that pic, even when out getting those seriously embarrassing candid pics.
