I am by no means an expert on photography; I know more than the average person on the street, but on this forum I'm pretty sure I'm with the 3% biggest noobies. N
othing wrong with that as I just started this (way too expensive) hobby, except for me buggering you with, probably stupid, questions.
I've been checking these forums a lot lately and learned a lot (high five for learning!), but there's some things I just don't understand. This being one of them:
Why would you buy either the 24mm or 35mm? They have the same specs, one has just a tiny bit longer FL than the other.
Take two steps forward or back, and you have exactly the same image in your viewfinder. They both aren't really wide angle lenses, and to be honest, I wouldn't know what type of photography they're suited well for. It's just that I'm wondering why you would buy one or the other, as taking a step forward or back will yield the same result.
The ónly thing I can come up with why you would get one is for the bokeh, because with one you'd be relatively closer to the object than the other, resulting in a slightly different bokeh.
Someone enlighten me please.
