That's the whole point... You're not learning anything about focal lengths or why they exist, or why there has been standard focal lengths such as 24, 28, 35, 50, 90, 100, and 135mm for such a long time.

Standard focal lengths are there because that's what started being made and unimaginative photographers keep buying them as they become "must haves" for no other reasons than they box their view into those set focal lengths.

OK, you win, I'm over arguing with non-pros why professional photographers have done things for so long the same way and continue to do so, you must know something they don't Guy?

Everyone else who owns the 12-40 F/2.8 must also know something about the land of milk and honey in terms of low light performance that I don't know about either.
