Well, it’s all about this:
And you need a fast enough lens with a “real” viewfinder if you want to see everything your subject can see.
And I don’t mean the viewfinder is always in focus or at full aperture, but in actual use I rarely have to adjust anything.

This has the widest aperture of any lens I know. And it offers the most depth of field of any lens on this list. As a general rule, in low light, I’ll
