Does a fixed focal length simplify or complicate the picture taking?
4 months ago

I'm trying to understand the appeal of a camera such as the 100S, or even the photographer who gets prime lens.  Is it just a matter of specializing in one type of picture, or does the inherent limitation only free the photographer to concentrate on the composition?
