most used lens analysis and conclusions

Just returned from a short trip to the Die Harz, a region in Germany. I took photos with my XH-1 and 18, 27 and 50mm.

I selected a serie of 28 photos which gave me an good impression of my trip.

Analyzing the lenses I used for this serie gives the following result:

18mm: 14%

27mm: 39%

50mm: 46%

I was surpised. I always thought a standard lens gives me in my style of photogrophy the most keepers. For the Harz I was wrong.

One can draw several conclusions or recommendations:

- Analysing your most used lens can be rewarding, to confirm or to debunk your own subjective ideas

- My style of photography has evolved.

- I should more investigate the potential of the 18mm

- Trading the 27mm for a 35mm could be rewarding.

Do you have more insights?

Here are three examples


27 mm

50 mm

All photos are on
