Your DSLR kit may have given you a standard lens that provides you with well-performing zoom, but picking up an additional option can really help elevate your shots and improve overall performance.
The thing you’re likely weighing up is whether splashing out a large three-figure sum for a new lens is really worth it. However, plenty of entry-level DSLR kits come with, as you may expect, an entry-level feel to them. With a dedicated lens, you’re not just getting a higher-quality zoom, but better build quality and faster aperture, too.
So, whether you’re completely new to buying lenses or you’re a Canon and Nikon veteran looking to add to your collection, we’ve rounded up some of the top options for you to consider.
As ever, you’ll have to do your own checks on whether they match up with your camera’s lens mount and sensor size, but, with that, you’ll be ready to explore.
