A blessing in disguise,

That's a pretty solid NOPE.

If that photo was taken with a 50mm lens at 2 feet then either the shark is a lot smaller than described in the article or the photographer was using a medium format camera.

Okay. That was both terrifying and funny as hell!

That's why they call it a wetsuit.

TFA says it was the Canon 1.4 on a 5dmkIV.

I've got that glass strapped to my 7d1, and I can't fit a car into the frame at 6 feet, much less two; however I'd say it's highly likely that he was burst shooting, and while the shark "turned away 2 feet from his camera", that particular image is probably from when the shark was a few yards from the cage. The 50mm focal length just makes it look like it's in his face. When I'm shooting stuff at the racetrack and things are coming at me at high speed, I'm in spray-n-pray mode, and I don't care if I have to shoot 50 to get 1, the driver only cares about the best one anyway.

Weeners questions science. (oddly and incorrectly, but that's par for the course)
but it took 8 comments to reference liberals.

Canon 5D mk IV is a full frame, 35mm equivalent sensor.

What was supposed to happen in a shark cage and you were hoping for when you booked the shark cage was captured on the camera you took with you into the shark cage because that's pretty much the whole purpose of renting a shark cage. Shark cage.

Your 7D has an APS-C sensor with a crop factor of 1.6, so your 50mm lens would give have the equivalent reach of 80mm.

50mm is a good lens for taking a portrait.

What's the point of having a VIDEO in the article about Still Photography?

The optics behave differently under water. More wide angle. A full-frame 50 works more like a 35. .

What you're all forgetting is that he didn't say he was shooting with a 50mm, he was shooting with a 50mn.  Huge difference.  I haven't seen a 50mn in all my time of taking pictures but, hey, it's a big world.
