56mm vs 60mm. Noob question
10 months ago

Hello everyone!

I am still learning and so this might be a weird question.

Why making a 56mm lens? I understand it's faster, but why not keeping it at 60mm w/ the faster stop? Who decides 56mm? Why not 50mm instead? I like even, round #s.

Again, sorry about my ignorance, but I just wonder how they plan these things out.
