Best Lenses to buy for your Camera

So you’ve got your new camera and you know that if can take different lenses. You’ve still got the one that came with the camera. How do you take things to the next level and improve your photography? I’m listing below what i’d recommend for the cameras listed on my recommended pages. All these are what are known as cropped bodied cameras. The cost and weight of a full frame camera is not required (even for professionals it’s not always the best choice).

The Pro Lenses

These are the lenses the pro use (or equivalents) for everyday work. They are big, heavy and offer a constant aperture of f/2.8 throughout the zoom range. There are also now f/4 versions that are cheaper and lighter designed for travel. These f/2.8 version are the main go-to lenses of many professional photographers worldwide and their quality is top notch as is the price! I list them here more for comparison purposes than anything else.

Nikon 14-24
Nikon 24-70
Nikon 70-200 II

Canon 16-35/2.8 II
Canon 24-70/2.8 II
Canon 70-200/2.8 II
