Photographic equipment and techniques are very much behind the general improvements in science. I think it's very strange that we have to spend some time in a dark-room to process a film. It hasn't changed since the first days of photography. I think that the zoom lenses being made do not cover the right range. You and I know that we would rather shoot from 25 to 100 than 85 to 300. It's like having a car with only a top gear.
I see in cinemascope. I think that the 35 mm. frame is too square. I am forced to work with fisheye through to 500 mm. lenses, but my normal choice is a 35 mm. lens on a Leica, and a 100 mm. lens on a Nikon F SLR. It is a matter of taste, because I think Henri (Cartier-Bresson) works with a 50 mm. lens only. Using a camera is very much like putting on a tie, or another tie, or another pair of shoes, according to God knows why. There are days on an assignment when I will shoot only with a 200 mm. lens. I put my 200 vision in my head and shoot away. I don't see anything else. When I'm fed up with it I either stop shooting or switch lenses.
