Re: Equipment envy

Please expalin how changing your lens (by which I presume you mean focal length) changes your point of view?

There is only one thing that changes your point of view and that is if you physically move position.
The focal length of the lens has nothing to do with it.

If you want to be fussy, then, yes, you are right.

But I regard focusing on a detail rather than having an overall view a rather massive change in perspective.

Add to this the modification to the distances that a tele lens entails (and also dof differences) and you will - maybe - get my point.

This forum seems (at least lately) to be a hive for people who refuse to understand on purpose what other people are saying and try to be the more finicky they can about things that make look good...
