There are dozens of decisions to make before purchasing a lens or choosing one to add to your wishlist. Should you use a prime or zoom? Do you need a fast aperture? Why are some lenses so much more expensive? And why are some so heavy? There are even more basic questions worth addressing: What does each lens do? And there are some more complicated: Why would I want a 105mm lens vs. an 85mm lens for portraits? Join Hunt’s Photo Education as we walk you through all the things you should consider before purchasing a new lens.
