Fixed focal lenses, otherwise known as prime lenses, range from 8mm, up to attached lenses as big as 800mm. Their focus is sharper than ordinary zoom lenses and they offer a wide maximum aperture, which makes them ideal when lighting is an issue. Furthermore, along with their fine control over depth-of-field they boast superlative image quality.
If fast, lightweight and compact lenses are what you’re looking for, the Nikon 24mm F2.8D AF Wide-Angle Lens is for you. Its Close Range Correction System allows for impeccable image quality and is effective for shooting handheld as well.
The tiny Zuiko Digital 25mm 1:2.8 Pancake/ ES- 2528 weighs a mere 95g, making it easy for you to take it with you wherever you go. It has a F2.8 maximum aperture and a 25mm fixed focal length.This means it would be the ideal fit for someone who wants a fixed lens but lacks the overall space.
Alternatively, if you’re searching for something with a little more bulk, consider the Sigma Lens 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Sony- Art . It offers lightning fast yet silent autofocus, while allowing manual focus as well. The image sharpness of this lens is truly something to behold.
