Prime LensPRIME LENSA photographic lens used as an (1) alternative, fixed focal length alternative to a zoom lens or, (2) more traditionally, as the primary lens in a combination lens system. In the first sense, a prime lens is known for having a larger maximum aperture and consequently offers greater shutter speeds, having advanced optics and weighing less than zoom lenses, albeit less flexible, because of their simpler construction with less moving parts. In the second sense, a prime lens refers to the primary lens when paired with other optical devices. A prime lens's focal length is fixed and the photographer is required to move closer or further to achieve the correct image composition.es are lenses with a focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. that cannot be changed or zoomed. Therefore it is also called a Fixed Focal Length Lens.
A Prime Lens offers excellent image quality with ultimate sharpness and contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). and minimal aberrations and distortions, however lacks the convenience of being able to re-compose your image quickly. With a Prime Lens you would need to physically move closer or further to re-frame the image. Many of the top-end TelephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. Lenses available for professional wildlife or sport photography are Fixed Focal Length Lenses.
