Canon lenses tell a different story every time you choose a new lens

Canon has been in the Camera game for a long time, so it’s no surprise to hear their name crop up everytime you mention the word camera or more importantly – DSLR’s. However when it comes to shooting on cameras, the camera body is not the only thing that matters in taking that picture perfect image – because the next important part of the chain is the all important lens choice. For those who might not know, selecting which lens you want to either buy (or take on a shoot with you) is quite important to the photographer due to the how each lens can be used in different circumstances – essentially each lens tells a different story. Lenses are sorted into different categories, such as Sport & Wildlife, Landscape, Macro, Portrait, Architecture, and the General lens which can be used in most cases. To get a better idea, take a look at the different range of Lenses Canon offers here.

The general consensus is that you won’t get the best picture if you use a general lens, for a Macro (close up) shot. You’ll get a decent picture no doubt, depending on how skilled you are at making that camera sing (figuratively), but you won’t get the best picture you can get without a Macro lens. Therefore it’s important to choose which lens you want, and I personally usually recommend at least 2 lenses so you’re never out in the cold when it comes to taking shots.

Either way, the best thing to do is to take a look at the video below which features Australian singer Guy Sebastian, with Canon master Graham Monro to show you how a different lens can really make a different effect when it comes to the same picture. Take a look and see for yourself!
