    Re: Is it a linear progression between 90mm and 150mm?

    I don’t even remember what the original post was about! This conversation has clearly moved on. I love it.

    I think I agree that there’s definitely no need to carry any lens between 90mm and 150mm. BUT, there still may be a need for a lens in the middle to carry by itself.

    As for getting closer and perspective and composition and all that, no lens is going to help me overcome my failures on that front. BUT more lenses will just give me more opportunities to screw it up!!

    I love this shit!

    LOL... more lenses will likely lead to more missed shots.

    Just as less lenses will lead to less shots taken.

    Only if the number of lenses goes below "1".

I know of a few highly accomplished artists who use them. They are useful not only for getting a sense of focal length per se, but also for general composition and framing, what to include/exclude etc. This can be handy for dealing with complex compositions and/or dense/cluttered subject matter, or even for preliminary worth it/not worth decisions before setting up a camera.

    Of course I’m not suggesting YOU need one, but generalizing.
    It seems Stephen Speilberg still uses viewfinders at 72.

    More lenses means just more stuff my heirs have to figure out how to get rid of. Even one more lens means me getting kicked out of the house and sleeping on the front porch with the cat.

    Who cares about what his/her heirs have to figure out. Maybe time they start using their brains instead of tapping away on their smartphones. And if you have to sleep on the porch because of an extra lens, then that cat is a better compagnon. At least they give love without second thoughts.

    Sorry if this offends, had a bad couple of days. But I take a cat any day.

    Cat hair ain't so good for camera gear. And fleas ain't so good for me. All outside are basically kittens; even the mom and pop are less than two years old. But the indoor cats are now all old. A little old lady brown cat maybe 19, but still playful. A pair of flametip 17 yr twins - a male who now limps a bit, and his sister, a 3-legged amputee due to cancer. That means I have only one male ally in the house, and three females always bossing us around - one with two legs, one with three legs, and one with four ! But I love em all.
