Thought for the day: Yet a Third Way of Comparing Lens Focal Lengths
Two weeks ago we considered if 2mm makes a difference in lens focal length. Here is another way.

Let’s compare different lenses with a subject 50’ away. Why 50’? Because where I live the property line for houses are 50’ apart. This means that you get use to seeing the size of a person or car 50 foot away from you

Lens – Image as if you were:
50mm  –  50’ away
100mm  –  25’ away
200mm  –  12.5’ away
1000mm  –  5’ away
Longer lenses don’t seem to gain much in this case. You could just take a few steps forward.  On the other hand maybe you can’t move from where you are.
2400mm → Full Moon fills a Full Frame camera sensor

And in the other direction:
Lens  –  Image as if you were:
50mm  –  50’ away
24mm  –  100’ away
10mm  –  500’ away
Might be more work to walk backwards 450’ compared to changing lenses.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
