I am just starting out in LF, and I am trying to determine which focal length lens is right for me. I know this much: 150mm lens are standard for LF and that a normal lens for LF has more focusing flexibility than a camera with a static back.
I have found a used camera that I like, but it comes with a 300mm lens...which leads me to my question: So what is the defining characteristic of a 300mm lens? What is it most often used for? How close and far away can I move from my subject and still be able to get things in focus? What can't you do with a 300mm lens? I really just do not understand the significance of the lens measurement...
Any insight will be greatly appreciated!! Thank you very much for your time. Bye, Kelli
