What is a telephoto lens?
Because we can’t speak english
I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,
but I would like you to understand
We are familiar with the maintenance report
In this issue
I will write about telephoto lenses.
I will write this article with reference to the lenses we sold in the past at
Vintage Shop Japan Inc.
Canon NEW FD 200mm f/2.8
The telephoto lens has a narrower field of view (angle of view)
than the standard lens and allows you to take a larger picture of a
distant object (subject).
For SLR lenses that use 35mm film, lenses with focal lengths from
about 70-80mm are generally called telephoto lenses.
And the focal length is longer.
See this column for more information on focus.
The maximum aperture value is
larger than those of standard lenses and other lenses, often from f/4 to f/5.6.
Some lenses are as bright as F2.8, such as the reference lens shown here.
For more information on aperture, please see this column.
Many types have a lens hood built in.
This is an easy-to-understand way to identify a telephoto lens.
Stay tuned for the next installment of our easy-to-understand
film camera series!
We also have other telephoto lenses on display.
Nikon Ai-Nikkor 300mm f/4.5
