Why so many Guides:
The guides are divided up into various photography disciplines. They address the needs of those disciplines in particular.
Most lenses perform well for multiple uses across photography disciplines. But sometimes certain lenses will far exceed others for a particular job. These are the ones that we list in these lens guides – the excellent ones.
However, photographers will often use every type of lens that they can lay their hands on. This is because they’re always trying to create an image that looks different … a different style of image.
That in turn means that these guides can never be entirely comprehensive for every photographer. It remains up to you … the photographer; to experiment and learn which lenses suit your style of photography, and to learn how to get the most from each lens that you use. What we offer is merely a beginning point for your exploration.
