What a crock that is.

You think so, huh!?

Well, all the old photographers I know say the same thing... professionals, and amatuers alike.

What's more, I can state from experience that women, as a group, prefer wide-angle lenses, (presumably so they can get a lot in!)...

... where young men like a nice L-O-N-G telephoto lens, (the longer the better, apparently!)

Pick the bones out of that!
