Once you have a good spot to hang out for a bit and sorta blend in, the zoom gives you the option of either shooting up close or quickly switch distances without drawing any attention to yourself.
I don't mind being in peoples faces at all, Lived in NYC for 10+ years but I get my best shots usually when not noticed or just ignored.

Here's an interesting read, somewhat related: The Fisherman of Barcelona | Create

24-120mm at F8 and I'm good.

Also modern 28-300mm lenses from almost any major manuf are simply awesome.

It's never been a better time for Zooms, as modern cameras perform so well at high ISO "Slow" compact zooms are great walk arounds.

Zooms are my absolute fav street lenses. Even more so now with distancing etc.

But I was always a sniper/fisherman and patience + zoom = success

I'm out as well, I need to focus more on my Film projects. Only so much time in the day.

Love you all, Had so much fun hanging out for a few months again.

Will try to return in the fall, gray days, leaves on the ground, people in the streets.

Here's some high grain Kodak Tmax 3200, with a film version of one of my shots from earlier :)

2 SD cards in the car, Wife's car, wallet.

Theyre cheap enough.

(Also, when you shoot a lot of film your "leaving the house" routine is thorough and that transfers over to really not forgetting much)

If forced to only shoot F lenses for the rest of my life, I'd be pretty ok with that.

Staying in the shade with a zoom so as not to offend the natives, even put on a tourist strap.

There are no rules man, do what makes you happy :)

Life is to short to have to justify every little thing that brings us joy. (Also, photography is not serious, but don't tell anyone)

I dig the zooms for street these days a lot. Not just because of distancing.

I like setting up a spot with the right background and just wait for people to walk in and out, and with a zoom youre not so obvious as you can be fairly far away.

I'll argue that most HDR type over saturated mega detailed forest shots out there have very little in common with what my eyes actually see in a forest. Same goes for the utlra sharp 4K "travel" videos on youtube.

Maybe I need new glasses? I only had glasses for a few years tho...

Also, the only green that matters is Fuji green. And reds...maybe..

I dont understand the Explore AI at all, it's a strange algorithm at best.

From my own shots, its never the images I would choose that get explored. I had Holga monochrome snapshots explored hahaha.

Breaking out this thing:
Computar 2.8 28mm M42 samples and thoughts... - PentaxForums.com
Cost less than a nite out at the Hot Dog stand under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

Gonna stick the IIs in Sv mode and just zone focus like a boss.
