I knew what I was getting into. I don't own a long lens. 85mm is the longest lens I own. But I feel that a long lens is cheating in a way. The human eye can not zoom in on the action. You have to use your feet to get a better vantage point. So in a way the photos I take truly represent my views and what "I" see. Don't get me wrong, there is a purpose for long lenses. I may get one in the future, but until then I just make it work.
