If you are a budding photographer who started out with using the kit lens, as it is basic and it already comes with the package, and have finally found your sweet spot in photography, then it’s time for you to invest in lenses. Each lens offers something different for professional photographers and hobbyists. There are macro lenses, fixed lenses, standard zoom lenses, telephoto lenses, and more are available depending on your area of expertise. Before purchasing a lens, you must always consider your genre in photography. If you’re into fashion, it would be best to invest in fixed lenses or a macro lens that are perfect for portraits while the telephoto lens is great especially for sports and wildlife photography.
Through the years, lens manufacturers continued to improve their products including new features like an image stabilizer that helps reduce the shakiness in an image. They had also made some adjustments and equipped the lenses with a higher ISO and aperture that could help brighten the photographs taken. These Lenses nowadays are infused with an auto-focus technology that you can switch right back to manual focusing, whichever you prefer or what the landscape needs.
