In just a few short years the world of photography has been turned upside down, and the advent of the iPhone and other innovations like mirrorless cameras has created a dizzying array of options.

There was a time when photographers didn’t carry nine different lenses with their camera, a time when one wide-angle lens was enough to get an adroit photographer through the day because he realized that sometimes the best way to zoom in was to damn well walk closer to his subject. While most of us like having a versatile zoom lens, there’s something to be said for having only one focal length: when you shoot with a fixed focal length camera, you don’t take pictures, you take photographs. We’ve rounded up the top six “fixies” to get you started on your path towards being an artisan.
The point-and-shoot market may have hit a smartphone camera iceberg, but the ship hasn't sunk yet. In fact, bitter competition has sped up the photography arms race, producing a wide field of top-tier compact cameras with big sensors -- at a better price. Boasting image quality more than good enough to be deemed professional, these cameras can be a useful tool for the prosumer and feverish enthusiast alike, providing an infinitely more portable, all-in-one option rather than bulky DSLRs while sharing many of the same features and image quality. That said, it's up to you sharpen the focus on what you really need. We don't mind walking a few steps to get the right shot -- so our choices hone in on the best compact cameras that sport big sensors, fixed lenses and fast focusing. There's a big field of small shooters; we're here to slim it all down to the cream of the crop.
It's easy to think that a bag full of lenses is a good thing -- hell, there's one for nearly every possible use. But what exactly is the perfect lens? In our book, it's the tried and true 35mm. A perfect medium between wide and normal perspectives, the 35mm lens stands as an indispensable gem for pro shooters and hobbyists alike. As the staple of prime lenses (fixed focus), there's no shortage of lofty offerings, but owning a Canon or Nikon camera doesn't mean that brand has a stranglehold on the lenses you can shoot with. In fact, recent offerings have proven that the third party lens is a force to be reckoned with (case in point: the Sigma above). Here, we present five of the best 35mm lens offerings available today that aren't Canon, Nikon or Sony. Consider it a fresh look on an old-school perspective.
The Leica M is a new flagship rangefinder from the venerable photography brand that carries the torch from the Leica M9.
