Standard, wide angle, telephoto, macro and more—there’s a camera lens out there for every style of photography, and all of them can be found right here at CameraPro. Whether you want pin-sharp portraits against dreamy, blurred out backgrounds; telescopic reach to snap the action at an event or on safari; or a wide angle of view to embrace the most epic of landscapes, CameraPro offers all the equipment and advice you need to turn your photographic visions into reality.
High-performance camera lenses are a vital part of your camera system. When it comes to equipment, few things affect image quality as much as the optical quality of the camera lens you’re using. Good lenses are a worthy investment for any photographer and, if properly cared for, may serve you well for years and years.
Before you buy a camera lens, you’ll need to think about the types of images you want to create, and how you prefer to shoot. Different camera lenses yield differing levels of creative freedom. Deciding whether you want to shoot landscapes, portraits or macro can therefore have a big impact on your lens purchasing decision.
Two key characteristics to look out for when buying a camera lens are the focal length and the maximum aperture.
A shorter focal length offers a wider field of view with less magnification (ideal for landscapes) while a longer focal length has a narrower field of view and higher magnification (ideal for wildlife). A lens with zoom capability (e.g. 24-70mm) offers convenience and versatility, allowing you to change your field of view without changing your physical position—or the lens. Fixed or prime (i.e. non zoom) lenses (e.g. 35mm), on the other hand, are typically sharper and faster (see below) and, because they require the photographer to move (or change lenses) to change their field of view, often encourage more creative approaches.
As for aperture, a lens’ maximum aperture value (marked on the lens barrel in f-stops) indicates how bright or ‘fast’ the lens can go; the smaller the f-stop number, the more light the lens can let through, and the faster and more usable it is in low light situations.
