I'm not normal.

I just redid my occasional exercise to determine how I see the world.

When you have a moderate zoom lens on your camera, focus your gaze on a broad, consistent scene. I'm in the White Mountains, so mountainside. Then reproduce what you see in the viewfinder by zooming in or out.

I tend to come up with a mild telephoto, 60-100mm FFeq. This time I was about 60×2=120mm FFeq. (Micro 4/3 c.f.=2) I've been looking at mountains a lot, so maybe no surprise there. My favorite lens is the Olympus Plastic Fantastic, 80-300mm FFeq. No surprise either.

"Normal" lenses are 50-ish mm FFeq. Call it 40-60mm, if you like.

Are you "Normal"?
