Camera Tech Basics – Part 2 – Lens

Which Lens Should I Get?

I am asked frequently “which lens should I get” or something along those lines. As with the sensor / mega-pixel discussion – I see a lot of people go for a top shelf camera and then skimp on the lens. Of course, it all depends on what you want to shoot, but in general, I am a big fan of good glass.

I don’t think anyone will disagree with the statement that there is no right answer about what is the right lens or lenses for a particular person.

So, what do I look for in a lens? Maybe that is a good place to start.
