When we begin contemplating adding to our arsenal of camera gear, one of the of the trickier areas to navigate are lenses. You have to understand elements and groups; lens mounts and formats; new vs. used and so much more.

Let's talk about all the decision points in buying a lens and break them up into the seven questions I'm asked most often.

  1. Should I invest more in the lens or camera?
  2. Which lens should I buy next?
  3. What are the key features you should look for when evaluating a lens?
  4. Should I only buy lenses from the same manufacturer as my camera?
  5. Should I buy a used lens?
  6. What should I look for when I am buying a used lens?
  7. Why are lenses so flipping expensive?!

Somewhere in this list, I hope I have the questions and answers that you might have about lenses.
