Bullshits, to be honest. Peraphs the 50 is the only lens YOU need but it is not True about rest of the world. Period
A 50mm is not the only lens you will need. It is the only lens you will need that requires a 50mm lens. What a bullshit headline.
There’s no point in elevating my blood pressure over such puerile comments, but I fell for the troll. Many photographers feel the need to express their righteousness on issues ranging from gear to the ethics of photojournalism. In some cases, photographers rise above the fray and present a cogent argument devoid of ad hominem attacks, but more often, an anonymous man sitting in solitude behind the cool glow of his computer shouts an angry response with very little to back it up. They just have to be right, and usually they’re pretty angry about it too. And to what end? Who’s gonna listen if everyone is shouting?
Photographers are constantly fighting for respect. Respect from their employers and clients. Respect from their audiences. Perhaps a little humility and respect within their own community would be a good place to start, dontcha think?
Update: The previously identified May cover photo was incorrectly identified as Pugliese’s. It was Sebastian Kim’s. The image has been corrected.
