When it comes to standard prime lenses, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm are generally the most popular. Nonetheless, there are plenty of other focal lengths out there, and one particularly worthwhile option is 24mm. This great video discusses why a 24mm lens can be such a compelling option and why you should consider including one in your arsenal.
Coming to you from Pat Kay, this interesting video makes a case for why you should consider adding a 24mm lens to your bag. Many people have 24mm available in a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, but something like a 24mm f/1.4 is vastly different. Aside from a few exceptions, 24mm is generally the widest focal length at which you can get an f/1.4 aperture, making it a unique creative combination and one that many people quickly find addicting. Furthermore, it is about as wide as you can go before wide angle distortion becomes significantly visible and begins to take over the overall appearance of the image. All these attributes make such a lens fantastic for a huge range of applications, including astrophotography, landscapes, portraiture, events and weddings, and a lot more. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Kay.
