LENS: 50mm lens.

Why not go back to basics by using one lens and eschewing the zoom. Fixed focal lengths, such as 35mm or 50mm, are the preferred lenses of many street photographers as they are closest to the field of view of the human eye which makes it easier to frame quickly and take a picture. The 50mm has very good close focusing capability, making it remarkably versatile. With its f/1.4 maximum aperture, the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens ([pounds sterling]600) is ideal in the fading light of winter afternoons. A hypersonic motor ensures autofocus is quiet and smooth, while the minimum focusing distance of 40cm is ideal for close-up photography.
