This I found interesting.... Doesn't tell you what was used, more like just asks what you like and then gives you the lenses you picked (or would like) based on that, but in the upper right lists what I thinks you liked and why about the images. Interesting.

The lens I use the least that I have, was my initial top selection.

Puzzling!

Here are the 5 images I picked:
1. wide-angle
2. close-up
3. action
4. still life
5. low-light

The lens recommended was a 75mm f/1.8. I have an adapted 85mm f/1.4 that I could use on my Olympus micro 4/3 body but have never needed to do so. Of the 5 images I picked, the recommended lens would be a useless substitute for the wide-angle image. A macro lens would have been better for the close-up image. A lens with less working distance would have been better for the still life.

It is puzzling how they arrived at their recommendation when of the 5 images, only the action image could benefit from the telephoto focal length and the low-light image could benefit from the f/1.8 aperture. Two out of five does not seem like a resounding recommendation.
