I've been studying and practicing photography for a couple of years now. The milestones in terms of photography gear that I managed to gather through time is:

  • March 2009: My first DSLR, a Canon 1000D with the kit 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 lens

  • March 2011: My first upgrade, an expected extender to my current focal range, Canon's 55-250mm F4.0 - F5.6 IS tele

  • November 2012: The much expected first contact with a prime lens, Canon's 50mm F1.8 lens

  • December 2012: The unexpected but very much wished upgrade, a Canon 60D body (it was 50% off for the Christmas season!!!)

  • December 2014: Time to re-experience the classic way of making photos, taking up a magnificent Nikon FM3A body with two incredible lenses (Nikon F-mount 28-85mm F3.5-4.5 and Nikon F-mount 55mm F2.8)

Ok, well the film is quite old and I was a child back then, so I didn't personally take the film, but thank you for your answer! It makes sense now. Funny enough I've never been to a photo lab to develop film and I'm not sure they exist anymore (in this tiny town I live in).

comment Do I need other camera lenses if I have an 18-200mm or other super-zoom?
The focal distance has nothing to do with focusing at those distances. The camera can (should be able to) focus at any point in its focal range.
