Originally, I was wondering if I could replace my 120-400 zoom by a 300mm prime and a 1.4x multiplier. Since I can’t resist a good occasion to write a python script, I quickly wrote something to extract the relevant EXIFs from a collection of pictures, and with the help of LibreOffice, make a histogram from that.
So this is the histogram of all the Photos I have on my hard disk, pretty much all of 2018 and a good deal of 2017, plus a few older directories I haven’t archived yet. Some interesting findings:
- I don’t use the 10-20mm that much
- I don’t use my 1.4x multiplier that much either (the small bar around 560mm)
- The long end of my 17-70mm is overworked. Maybe I should get a 24-105mm.
- I do make a lot of shots in the 280-400mm range, but I do use the low end of the zoom quite a bit, too.
