Made up story: Once upon a time a man called Steve invented a new camera. It was quite small and he only had room for one lens. He chose one a little bit wide but not properly wide. For the next 10 years, most new cameras had basically the same lens. Do YOU like 28mme? Is it the new “normal”? What should be considered normal now? Aspect ratios have changed. Video is more popular. If cameras of the future shipped with a kit prime rather than a zoom, what should it be? What impact will 28mme have on the future of photography?
Some very interesting points in this podcast about focal lengths, and how the 28mm lens is by far the most commonly used lens today.
