I’m not a camera teckie but I’ve always had a pretty good camera and taken lots (and lots of photos).
You know that song “the wheels on the bus…” ? Well our family version has a verse “the Nanas on the bus go Click click Click”.
I now have 2 cameras.
My wonderful Minolta Dynax digital which lets me take as many photos as I want but which has been overworked (had to have a new top last year as I wore the last one out including the shutter button).
My latest Panasonic Lumix G6 - lovely little thing - Micro Four Thirds System / Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) that’s half size and weight of the Minolta and 10* the resolution. Colours are better, truer, as well.
I had that for Christmas the idea being to use the Minolta exclusively at home to photograph my glass and the Lumix away from home / for everything else.
I now find I’m using the Lumix nearly all the time as, I hate to admit it, it takes better photos and loves photographing glass…
So that was a lot of background to a simple request for advice.
Bob says I can have a telephoto lens for my birthday but I don’t know which to choose.
- 35/100 mm or
- 45 /150.
the 35/100 is £50 more but 3/4 of the size and weight and the beauty of the camera itself is its small size and weight.
So please will the camera experts out there tell me which to get and why.
I want telephoto so I can zoom in on things (eg birds) and get better shots of distant things.
Any advice gladly received. xx
