comment Can a telephoto lens have a wide field of view?
Yes I will use the narrowest prime lens (highest focal length) I have that will fit the subjects at that subject distance (space constraint), then I will crop afterwards.

comment Can a telephoto lens have a wide field of view?
@AJ, Yes I understand now that given the same subject distance, the faces of my subjects will have the same flatness whatever the focal length I use. Therefore I will use the narrowest prime lens I have that will fit the subjects at that subject distance, then I will crop afterwards. I understand it now, right?

Yes indeed, that other question explains it well. Next time when I am constrained by space (subject distance), I'll just use a wide-angle lens and then crop the result. Thank you for the quick answers.

comment Why are lenses like the 40mm small and lightweight, but get larger and heavier as they get wider or narrower?
Yes, a lot, but the question was: What made 40mm the middle? What made f/2.8 the middle? And as a minor point, I'm asking about the lens's physical size and weight, not just the front-element diameter.

For the first part of the question, the focal length. For the second part, the aperture. It's a two-part question :)

Not by EXIF/XMP software tags, but yes by other means, known colloquially as "I can haz see d pixelz". :) (plus, what dpollitt said.)
