As my kids come of age, I teach them to drive with manual transmission first. And for photography, a MILC with 50/f1.8 efl first (in this case, a Nikon V1 + 18.5/1.8 prime).

IMO, once they learn to work with constraints, they appreciate the physics behind them.

another vote for 25mm f/1.8. The normal field of view is versatile, and the f/1.8 allows one to experiment with depth of field. I learned on a Nikon D70 with 35mm f/2... which provides a normal FOV on Nikon DX.

I learned to drive manual transmission as well back in the 80’s. Sadly it has been years since I’ve even been in a car with a manual transmission. The last car I owned with one was a ‘91 Saab 900s.
