If you love taking photos with your digital SLR camera, you are eventually
going to want to explore new and different
DSLR lenses. When choosing a new lens, you want to consider many factors, such as
what type of shots you want to take, how much money you have to spend,
and what brand of DSLR camera you have.
What Brand is Your Camera?
Your new DSLR camera lens will have a unique lens mount that attaches to the
digital camera body. Many camera manufacturers make lenses with mounts that only fit
onto their camera brand. For instance, if you have a Nikon DSLR, you probably
won’t be able to use a Canon lens. Luckily, you can use a third-party
lens that is made to fit various DSLR brands.
What Type of Photos do You Want to Take?
DSLR lenses fall into categories based upon the lens’ focal length
or focal range. Focal length is measured in millimeters. The higher the
number is, the greater your zooming capability will be. An ultra-wide
lens has a focal length of less than 24mm. These lenses can take in a
very wide scene, and are great for landscape, architecture, and interior
photography. A wide-angle lens has a focal range of 24mm to 35mm. They
have a wide field of view and close focusing distance. A telephoto lens
has a focal length that exceeds 70mm, and can even be as high as 135mm.
These lenses are perfect for sports, wildlife, and landscape photography.
What is Your Budget?
You can pick up great deals on older models of DSLR lenses, though these
older models may not fit your camera type. Your best bet is to shop sales,
look for discounts, and even buy a used lens from a reputable camera shop.
