    Is it worth using the VR on the lens if you're shooting at a high shutter speed? Love your videos with all the clear examples with the image info!

    Its not entirely true that primes are better at producing bokeh. There are two ways: Have a giant hole where lots of light can go through or have a very long focal length. Better both.

    There are quite a few primes that have absolutely no distortion, not always the most expensive ones! The Nikon 50mm 1.8G has NO distortion while the 1.4G costing four times as much has plenty.

    How does the photo at 4:28 (at f5.6) have a blurrier background than than the f2.8 shown a few seconds before?

    working as a photographer, My view is simple prime lens are great in the studio environment, if your in a fastly changing environment then zooms are the way to go, i use canon so my experience is usm f2.8 L II is a stunner of a lens, and so good My views are simple use what ever you can that best fits the job your doing.

    This video was good as an entry explanation.
    Starting out you should really use your kit zooms to figure out which focal lengths feel natural to you. From there you can tailor what lenses you think you'll need moving forward. From there buy your lenses and learn them inside-out. The field of photography you're getting into also can be a major factor in whether you go with a Prime or zoom as well. While shooting events or weddings, having zooms to cover certain focal lengths tends to be useful since you often do not have the luxury of standing in a completely optimal spot. Additionally, you could need to go from shooting a subject 30 feet away to something say… 3ft away. On the other hand, if you're a Portrait, architectural, or some types of documentary photographer, having just a few small fast primes can be essential.
    There are high-end and low end of both primes and zooms anymore. Picking one or the other is more of a matter of what you need for the type of work you'll be doing than one being better than the other necessarily.

    What camera and lens did you use to film this video?

    Hey guys love your stuff, just wanted to mention that I think its a bit weird to talk about lens compression by calling it distortion. When you talk about lens "distortion" usually you think about barrel distortion and pincushion distortion. With a wide angle you do get this distortion, but that is very different from the focal length properties that determine how much compression or how much of the background is visible, ie at the begging where you show a wide angle shot with lots of background and than a close up shot that only show a very small part of the background.
    Thats just the way I kind of see things. Thanks for all the great content!!!

    Compression distortion? it's called perspective.

    Plz buy a large lot of totally bricked/old GPU's and sell them TekSyndicate branded on EpicPants.com as coasters. Would buy.

    From my experiences I just bought a 50 1.4 and I just went out and took pictures. A lot of pictures. I didn't care about all the features I just made it work for me.

    Everyone at some point on their journey of financial self destruction asks themselves this prime vs zoom question. *Spoiler* you're gonna end up with a bunch of primes AND zooms. Learn how not to get murdered on craigslist and buy your stuff second hand. If you like nice things but can't afford nice things, it's the best way to go.

    Sigma 18-35 f1.8 is a really good lens that very nearly has the best of both worlds. Gonna get that lens sometime, just not ready to spend the money on it yet!

    Tek Syndicate,
    Thanks for posting these camera videos. I really want to get into photography as a hobby, but don't want to have to pack around a ton of equipment and don't have to spend a ton. Maybe you guys could make a video on best bang for you buck camera? I've seen camera like Sony A7000 on ebay for 650 – 700$ but lenses are 400$ for their bigger one.
