The best focal lengths for street photography tend to range from the low 20s to around 50, and given the ever-increasing popularity of mirrorless cameras, we thought we’d put together a roundup of our ten favorite lenses across systems. Some of these dip below the 20mm mark, but with the crop factor, they’re well within the ideal range. So, if you’re thinking of going mirrorless or have already and want to get into street photography, these are the lenses to consider.
Sony 24mm f1.8 (E-mount)
I’ve fallen in love with the 35mm field of view a while back and this lens renders that view perfectly. It is an absolutely amazing lens with fast focusing capabilities, an all metal build quality, excellent sharpness, terrific color rendition, and the list can go on and on. Pack all of that into a super small and portable package and you’ve got a winner.Buy it now: Amazon
