Hello Bluesky

may I ask what you use the 60mm for ? I ask because until a few years ago this FOV pretty much did not exist .

I understand that optically focal lengths from 50 mmm to 70mm are the easiest to design but wonder what is the attraction of those longer than normal focal lengths. for me they are too short for portraits (even full length portraits) and too long for street photography so I am curious

Looking forward to your reply

Actually, here's an oldie and apparently a goodie: http://blog.yanidel.com/books-reviews/60mm-hexanon-review/

I use the Pentax K01 with 40mmXS (60mm equiv) for all sorts of images.  And since they say a picture is worth a thousand words:

cropped

cropped

Caveat: I am still learning all about photography and digital photography, still trying to find my style and intuition.

But I think 60mm equiv works well for portraits and street as well, no?
