40mm, odd focal length?
Mar 2, 2012

Hi everyone,

I'm always surprized when people qualify the 40mm (60mm equiv.) as an odd focal length. There have been numerous 58mm 1.4 in the past and I used too shoot a lot with them without having any trouble regarding the field of view. 50 and 58/60 aren't that different in my opinion, and as I used it mostly for portrait work I never noticed any real changes when going back to the "standard" 50mm.
