Given the current state of technology, a case could be made that a photographer could exist today with only two lenses – a wide angle to moderate zoom, and a short tele to long tele zoom. That would be a mistake. For as good and flexible as today’s zoom lenses are, there are some compelling reasons to choose fixed focal length lenses on occasion. I’ll admit, 90 percent of the time I’ve got a zoom strapped onto my rig, but while researching and shooting the images for this story I once again found the joy in shooting with fixed focal length lenses, for the reasons stated below. Follow along with me to see why you should consider adding a couple of more lenses to your arsenal. For many of you, you already own them!
