That's it. I don't have anything else to say about lenses. You've heard it all. And I know there was a lot of stuff to hear between what we've covered here and what you have to know about exposure to get a good shot. There is a lot of stuff to remember when you're out taking a picture. Don't worry. It gets easier with practice. And as you shoot more, you'll understand that some things that you got to remember are relevant to one situation and others are to another and you won't have to sit and parse through this huge mess of the information and knowledge. I hope what you've come away with is a fundamental foundation level of lens understanding.
Not recipes for particular situations, but a deeper understanding of focal length and how it impacts your image, lens speed, and aperture, and all of the other things we've discussed. With that level of understanding, you'll be able to solve your own problems when you get out in the field, rather than getting hung up on thinking that it's only one simple set of solutions that applies to any problem. So, stick the lens on your camera, get out, and go shooting. Because it's practice that's going to make you a better photographer.
