Back in the days when film was king, the wisdom was that – all things being equal – the lens was more important than the camera. Sure, fast autofocus was important, and maybe a super-speedy motordrive for those shooting wildlife or sport, but what made the biggest difference to the quality of your images was the quality of your optics, pure and simple.
Today, of course, the quality of the sensor, and how an image is processed in-camera, is just as important, but with even the most affordable Nikon D-SLRs now boasting sensors that offer staggering image quality, the lens you use is arguably what matters most – which is where this issue’s feature comes in. We wanted to know which five Nikon lenses were considered to be utterly indispensable by some of the best pros in the business; you can find out what they said, and why, on page 26.
For many photographers, of course, there’s as much fun to be had playing with images as taking them, which is why we’re also giving away a free copy of HDR Projects 2 below – if you’ve never tried your hand at HDR processing, now’s your chance!
All that, plus an insider’s guide to selling your images as stock, shooting your very first wedding, making the most of Live View, and much more. Enjoy the issue, and happy shooting!
