an in-depth round-up to help you choose the next lens for your Canon and nikon dslr

One of the great ben­e­fits of choos­ing a DSLR ahead of a fixed-lens cam­era is the ver­sa­til­ity it of­fers when it comes to choos­ing the best lens for any given sub­ject or shoot­ing sit­u­a­tion. For the ma­jor­ity, the kit lens you buy with your first DSLR will be ad­e­quate for gen­eral shots and is likely to serve you well as you get to grips with how the cam­era op­er­ates. Give it a few months, though, and you’ll al­most cer­tainly feel like you’ve out­grown it and will want to ex­plore other pos­si­bil­i­ties.

If you’re a more ex­pe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­pher who’s pro­gressed from an en­try-level DSLR to an en­thu­si­ast or semi-pro­fes­sional model, chances are you’ve al­ready in­vested in a lens that’s bet­ter suited to the sub­jects or im­ages you like to take. With so many lens choices out there, though, it can be dif­fi­cult to know if you’ve bought the best you can, or whether there’s a su­pe­rior op­tic that will serve you bet­ter in the long run.

With hun­dreds of lenses pass­ing through our hands here at AP, we know ex­actly what to look for when it comes to choos­ing the best op­tics, whether it be for an APS- C DSLR or a full-frame model.

In this round-up, our fo­cus has been on gath­er­ing to­gether great ex­am­ples of Canon and Nikon lenses for novices, en­thu­si­asts and those who are pre­pared to pay a lit­tle more.

Each of the lenses listed gets our ap­proval and they’re all worth closer in­spec­tion.

Up­grad­ing from your kit lens can be a con­fus­ing process, but our guide will help you make the best choices
