Re: Lens for Landscape photography for Sigma sd Quattro H

I really believe that the idea is to use whatever lens you like and match the subject matter to it. One of my sad recollections is taking pictures of mountains (Sierra Nevada) with a 24MM lens on a FF camera. With that lens the huge mountains shrank down to nothing and looked like pimples in the distance. Thus in "close" environments, such as in a city, the 24mm lens would be fine, but not where the subject is far away. Unless you want to emphasize the foreground...

So for mountains, and wide open spaces, to prevent being overwhelmed by distance, a telephoto is better. But do we really want to pack up and go to the mountains to make pictures? Stick a medium lens on a proper camera and stay near at home. Use a tripod.
