Zoom Lenses ➶

Mike Johnston:

The point I want to make here is simply that the advent of the “zoom norm” simply meant that camera users in general tended to become more and more ignorant of the meaning of focal lengths and angles of view. The camera came with a lens; it was “wide” at one end and “tele” at the other; and there you had it.
