LENSES FOR WILDLIFE
Wildlife photography embraces a wide range of interests, and three lens options cover most eventualities
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.
