I have serious GAS issues, all this talk of 'needing' a 50mm - and all I can think of is the otus.. I feel sick  :o - the crisps and coke might not have helped though.

I had been yearning for the 200mm f2 so long, and second hand it's about the same price as the otus...

I could sell the 35mm Zeiss and get the 21mm..  - have 21mm 2.8, 55mm 1.4, 85mm 1.2, 135mm 2...oh GAS sucks :D

I didn't see the other thread but the thing I find detached from using the longer focal lengths is, the detached feeling! There is no communication with the subject so you are just framing juxtapositions, it is far more difficult to get a compelling image from mere juxtaposition.

Having said that I am all in favour of more photographers and fewer theorists on the forum so welcome  :)

I happened upon the thread again actually.

That is akin to sniping.
Find yourself a good place to hide and wait?
Sorry mate, but this voyeurism, not street photography.
Having the balls to get up close and personal to take the shot in the first place is the whole point of street photography...

Wasn't so tongue-in-cheek I guess :)
