Your favorite prime lens (or focal length) [new shot]
Challenge has finished
"Prime" lens now is used to mean a lens with a fixed focal length, so not a zoom. In days gone by, it meant the main lens which made the image, so could be a zoom. Take a new photo with your favorite prime lens, or a chosen focal length. If you choose a zoom, you must nominate a focal length you will be using before taking the photo. Please comment below, or send me a private message ahead of time with you chosen focal length. If you choose a fixed focal length lens, you are welcome to also nominate your lens ahead of time. If you shoot multiple formats, you may use a reasonably equivalent focal length across the formats. A 5% tolerance is allowed on nominated focal lengths. You are encourage to make a note of why this is your favorite.
