Choose the lens according to what you like to photograph
The lens must be selected based on what you want to photograph. Most likely, you won’t need a macro lens if you want to photograph a sport, or a wide-angle lens when photographing portraits.
The term that grades the magnification at which a subject is imaged, is focal length. The focal lengths are set within certain rules that determines what is best suited for the different types of photography, and these are nice to use when buying a new lens:
- Landscape and architecture: 8-35mm
- Street and normal: 35-50mm
- Portrait: 50-200mm
- Animals and sports: 200-800mm
A fixed lens has one focal length. These are more compact, lighter, and brighter than zoom lenses. This allows you to shoot in poor light conditions and opens up too many creative possibilities. A fixed lens, on the other hand, cannot zoom in any closer to a subject, so you must move closer to the subject instead. Bright fixed lenses can also give you the coveted blurred background - so-called bokeh.
The most popular fixed lens is 50mm, which is roughly equivalent to the width of a person's eyes, but you can get fixed lenses in focal lengths that extend from extreme wide angle (fisheye) to telephoto lens.
A zoom lens is often included when purchasing a camera. They have several focal lengths in one and the same lens, so you - as the name suggests - can zoom. This means that you won’t have to change lenses as often, this makes it especially convenient when you are on the go. Zoom lenses always got two specified focal lengths that extend the size of the zoom range. They are not as bright as fixed lenses but are more practical when you are on a trip.
A macro lens allows you to shoot extreme close-ups of flowers and insects etc. It can give you a new and slightly different perspective on the world. The near limit determines how far away you can stand from the subject to get the best possible result, and most macro lenses reproduce the subject in full size, 1: 1. The longer the focal length, the greater the distance you can have
A telephoto lens enables you to get close to distant subjects and works the same way as binoculars. It is often used for photographing animals or for sports photography. Such long focal lengths are more prone to motion blur - that is, the images become blurred due to the camera moving when the image is taken. Therefore, it is often a good idea to put the camera on a tripod when using telephoto lenses, in order to take as sharp pictures as possible.
Wide angle lens
With a wide-angle lens, the field of view becomes wider than with a normal lens. It is well suited for landscape pictures, or motifs where you won’t have the opportunity back up in order to get the full image. There are even specialized lenses that provide an extra-large image angle up to a full 180 °, so-called fisheye lens.
