Whether you are an amateur or a professional photographer, you have certainly faced the question of how to choose which camera lens to buy. When choosing a photo lens, you need to consider four essential things: focal length, maximal aperture, stabilization, and the focusing speed.
How to choose which camera lens to buy according to the focal length
Generally, there are two categories of focal length:
The focal length is basically the distance between the optical center of the lens and the focal spot of the image. It is always expressed in millimeters.
In order to know the focal length and find out whether it is fixed or variable, take a look at the figures marked in millimeters on the lens you want to buy. With variable focal length, you will have to look at the first and last digits; for example, 24-105 mm.
