When it comes to shooting street photography, choosing the right lens is critical. Zoom lenses allow the change of focal length and enable you to zoom in on your subject without being noticed. Prime lenses have a fixed focal length, are generally lighter, faster and produce sharper images. A fixed focal length forces you to be more creative in your composition, ultimately resulting in better photos.
