Re: Dumb question.. lens for D800

Try an experiment: shoot a wide angle lens and a telephoto with the same framing. Since I shoot a lot of landscape, that's what I would pick as a subject. You can do this with a model's face, but he won't like the 35mm so much. Observe the apparent distance between objects.

The telephoto lens will compress the apparent distance between objects. The wide angle will pull near objects nearer and push distant objects further away.

Playing with perspective in this way can lead to some very striking photographs.
