Inversion

What are my best lenses? Technically at least that is easy to work out based on my own observations and the many test bench reviews available.

75mm f1.8       The surgical instrument (and my dearest lens now the zooms are gone).

25mm f1.8       The "perfect" all-rounder

45mm f1.8       The gentle portrait expert (and the cheapest lens) 

17mm  f1.8       The street specialist

75-300mm      The surprise packet

Ok, that was as easy as it was irrelevant.

What are my most used lenses?

17mm               The first picked up for anything non portrait

75-300mm      The handy, do-anything tele. It is amazing how often it produces brilliant images.

45mm              The natural lens for portraiture or anything that needs a natural look.

75mm               Not as versatile as the zoom, nor as gentle and easy to use as the 45.

25mm               Still coming to terms with the role this one will play.

Almost a perfect inversion. There you go. I could have saved a lot of money if I knew this at the beginning!

 Does it matter which lens took the image? As soon as you start looking at an image, the  how  turns into  who, where, why  and  when .
