Photographers often focus on cameras, but it’s often the lens that has the most impact on your photos. In this episode, Jeff and Kirk talk glass: lenses. When do you want a prime lens, which has a fixed focal length, and when does a zoom work better? Why are prime lenses often better? And why not just use one zoom lens that hits both wide and telephoto ranges? We sort out an often confusing topic.
Listen to PhotoActive, Episode #17 – Prime vs Zoom Lenses.
