Positives and Pitfalls of buying Third Party Lenses
One of the biggest advantage of buying third party lenses as opposed to first party lenses is the price. Third part lenses are more affordable because they lack marketing expenses and materials used for the lenses are also less costly. First party lenses are made of high quality material. Another noted advantage of this is that lenses that are third party such as Sigma, Tamron and Tokina come with various mounts used for different camera brands. Sigma offers variations even Canon cannot beat, such as the 8mm fisheye lens. So, third party lens that are not available through big manufacturers like Nikon or Cannon can be had from these groups. Third party lenses cost about half the price of their first lens counterparts. Equivalent or better construction is what makes third party lenses stand out from the competition. This results in premium features on cheap lenses and a number of accessories to boot.
Types of DSLR Lenses
Many different types of lenses are available for DSLR cameras. The latter type of cameras are not full frame in that their sensors are smaller and as a result, lenses don’t have the same impact on these cameras as a film camera. Standard lenses are a common DSLR lens. These fit on cameras that are in the 50mm range. Additionally, there are kit lenses which include entry level quality zoom lens. Upgrading to the lens from the kit lens ensures that are at a lower to medium end of the lenses spectrum. Prime lenses are those which have only one focal length. They are less popular in an age when photographers like to have various focal length. While zoom lenses are known for their innovation, prime lenses offer image quality and speed or faster aperture. When it comes to DSLR lens, the Telephoto Zoom Lenses are the most popular ones and come in a range of configurations and quality. These lenses have a narrow or long range.
How to Buy The Best DSLR Lenses For Your Camera?
“Lens speed is the first thing to consider while making the purchase. It is one of the first things a salesperson will tell you and refers to how fast the lens is or (in other words) the maximum aperture of the lens. Aperture is the size of the opening that a lens opens to when the shutter is depressed or how much light gets through. The smaller the number, the larger the hole and more light can get in at the time. Fast lenses are more costly and can be used for advanced photography such as action shots.
Focusing distance is the next consideration. It is the measurement between the end of the lens and the nearest point it can focus on. Macro or close up photography ensures you can get in close and personal. More DSLR cameras have come up with a new feature called image stabilization. You should consider this as it helps to combat camera shake.”
