Street photography requires using a lens that has a number of features. A fast lens is a must, that way you can capture action, even in low-light situations. It’s also necessary to have a lens that’s compact - that way you can take your photos without shoving a giant lens in your subject’s face. Street photographers also need lenses with a reputation for offering highly sharp results.

The trouble is deciding which of three lenses - the 50mm, the 35mm or the 28mm, all of which share the same traits listed above - is the best for street photography. In the video below, Kaiman Wong offers his thoughts on the issue. Give the video a look and see which one he feels is the best lens for taking on street photography.
