LENS CHOICES

Australian T3 - - STATE OF THE ART -

It’s im­por­tant that you pick the right op­tic for the type of pho­to­graphs you’re tak­ing

Are you look­ing to re­place the lens bun­dled with the cam­era for some­thing bet­ter – by which we mean an op­tic de­liv­er­ing sharper and brighter re­sults? There are a stag­ger­ing amount of choices out there, and it can be a lit­tle over­whelm­ing mak­ing a de­ci­sion. Ul­ti­mately, the smaller the lens’s ‘f’ num­ber, the greater the amount of light that’s let into your shots.

For ex­am­ple, an f2 lens will be brighter – some­times re­ferred to as ‘faster’ – than an f11 lens. Also bear in mind that a ‘prime’ or stan­dard lens, with a fixed fo­cal length of, say, 50mm, will typ­i­cally give sharper, more de­tailed re­sults than a jack-of-all­trades zoom with a fo­cal length of, say, 28-70mm.
