The Couch Episode 9: Round Table Lens Discussion

Pin It

In this special episode of The Couch, Tim and Bobby are joined by special guest Gabe DeWitt for a round table discussion on lenses. Discussions include the advantages of full frame vs. cropped frame sensors, the importance of f-stops, why every photographer should have a 50mm lens, how different lenses affect the subject you are shooting, and more!  This episode is over 40 minutes long, and is broken into 3 segments on YouTube.  You can also view the entire episode as one continuous clip by subscribing to our podcast on iTunes.


In the episode, we mention several lens types.  Shown below are several examples of the same subject shot with different lenses. What’s particularly interesting is the comparison between the photo shot with the 50mm lens and the 24-70 mm lens.  They are nearly identical!  Difference between the two lenses?  Over $1000!  You can get a 50mm lens from Canon for roughly $100. All of these shots are directly from the camera, no processing was done.
