MID-RANGE ZOOM use a 100-400mm zoom lens to com­pose im­ages of an­i­mals in the land­scape, and where sub­ject dis­tance is un­pre­dictable. f5.6 lenses are ideal.

TELE­PHOTO LENSES 500mm or 600mm f4 lenses are the ul­ti­mate tools for bird and mam­mal pho­tog­ra­phers, where sub­jects are of­ten wary or dis­tant. the cost and weight of the lens is a down­side, though.

MACRO LENS De­signed for close fo­cus­ing (1:1). 50mm lenses are ideal when you can con­trol sub­ject dis­tance; 100mm lenses are great for sub­jects dis­turbed by a close ap­proach.
