Normal Primes (20-30mm)

Lenses for mFT-cameras...

Normal Primes

The standard choise, "nifty fifty", or in mFT world, twentyfive and lenghts around that. One of the most flexible FOV's, being useful from portraits to landscapes, street and macros (if the lens can do that). Super sharp ones, super fast ones and super soft ones for choises - and everything between. Pick yours, maybe a couple. I have 6 lenses covering this area, 3 in daily use (a couple of zooms there)... But remember, it's not always the sharpest lens that makes the photo unforgettable -  but in post processing (or with filters) it is easier to soften the sharp lens than sharpen the soft one .
