Any photographer will tell you that the lens you use is more important than the camera. It’s much better to get a great quality lens with an inexpensive camera than it is to buy an expensive camera with a cheap lens. I recommend always buying your camera body and lens separately because the lenses that come with the camera are usually cheap quality and a waste of money.
So, what do you look for when buying your first camera lens? How do you know if a lens is good quality and if it will work for the type of photos you want to take? Well the first thing you need to know is how to read the numbers on the side of the lens.
