I think one of the measures of true experimenters is that they don’t listen to anyone. They like what they like and they do what they like. Well, it’s a theory anyway.
I on the other hand have, for the longest time, had a little conversation going on in my head about which focal length lens I like. Except that I’m not the only one in the conversation. There are photographers and writers about photography in there as well. And they all have opinions on what are good and useful focal lengths.
If lenses were cheaper it wouldn’t have taken me long to try out the long lens I have been thinking about for a long time. But at last a ray of light has shone through and I bought the lens I want.
