Time proven focal lengths that satisfy for their field of view are 24, 35, 50, 85 .... What is the motivation to create un classic, questionable angles of view at for instance 32mm? It's absurd, and wrong.

People have not been staring through lenses for 100 years without coming to some aesthetic conclusions that stand the test of time. So along comes some pack of children at an engineering shop with probably no understanding of visual history of art decide to reinvent the wheel, just a little bit off of circular. Brilliant.

“Aesthetic Conclusions”?
I’m betting he hates ice cream too.

Now that's just good comedy...

I've also come to realize that the Zoom Lens is the ultimate injustice in this world.
Who'd have thought that everything wrong with society could be summed up so simply?

While this lens is a good companion for the M50 - no IS means no easy buy for me.
Now it depends on (1) overall IQ at f/1.4 and (2) size. If they manage to make it very small e.g. like EF-M 15-45 it would make the M50 (and all other EOS-M cameras) a nice low light compact camera.

Very interesting ... but no IS ... today we have vast amounts of options but that doesn't make it easier ... because a lot of options are not the one we/I need/want.
Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + EF 100mm Macro + EF f/2.0 100  + 4.0 / 70-200 IS

Let's take a variety of photos at 'classic' angles such as 24mm and 35mm and 'questionable' angles such as 32mm and 29mm  and get you to tell us which ones are classic and which ones are wrong.

Because clearly the wrong ones will stand out like a sore thumb.

If these in classic focal lengths are so questionable, why do we have zooms and why do so many people buy them?

Just my reasons to use zooms:
  • UWA-Zoom: no UW primes were available at the time I wanted a UWA zoom for APS-C (EF-S 10-22)
  • Tele-Zoom: Like to avoid changing lenses due to sensor dirt: EF 70-200 f/4 non-IS, used primarily as a convenient way to shoot focal lengths of 70 / 100 / 135 / 200 mm. I like to set a desired focal length and use the zoom afterwards like a prime.
  • 200mm lens, compact with IS: only option is now the EF 70-200 f/4 IS with some shorter focal lengths available if needed.

If I cannot change my location, a zoom is welcome to make the right framing before composition to get the maximum sensor area of the wanted shot.

    Interesting. My usage of lenses is exactly opposite.

    * I only buy and use primes if there is no zoom available .. mostly when i really want a faster lens than what is available in zooms (f/1.8, 1.4).   

    * i only use my zooms like a prime when i am focal length limited .. stuck at maximum or minimum focal length and no wide/longer (zoom) lens at hand.

    hehehehehe  ;D
