Top 5 reasons you "need" (or should have) a 50mm lens.
1. THE PRICE💲
The 50mm is the most affordable prime out there. Many brands make a version which keeps prices relatively low..
2. THE "BOKEH"🎨 (just pronounce this however you like, everyone else does.)
Basically, with a faster lens and the "lens compression" factor, you can get some sharp shots while blurring backgrounds. Be mindful, bokeh should not substitue for framing and composition.
Though tight in small spaces (even tighter if you have it on an APS-C camera-which most hobbyist-beginners do) it has many uses:
a) Portraits: It isn't so wide that it distorts faces like a smart phone, yet it isn't SO telephoto that you'll need to be 3 miles away from your model.
You can separate your subject without totally blowing out your background.
b) Street Photography: It is ideal for that comfortable distance between yourself and your subject. Sure, in dense, urban areas you may reach for a wider lens to put more in context, but the 50 just has that traditional, special look.
c) Landscapes: A 50mm will force you to see VERY specific shots you may miss with wider lenses.
d) Speed: The wider aperture is essential for shooting in low light...allowing faster shutter speeds at dusk for action your kit lens can't get.
4. COMPOSITION: 📐You won't be able to zoom in and out neurotically like a border agent on crack, so you'll work to get the best framing for your shot; thereby teaching yourself rules of composition by default. And (along with the 24mm and 35mm) a 50mm has been a recognized standard for fixed lenses since the Triassic era.
5. I lied. 🐴You only get 4 reasons. But then again, see no.3 "Versatility" A -D...then you actually get 7!
Bonus: flip your 50mm, hold it snug against the Bayonet and try it as a macro lens!
