“Camera lenses are like wine: when you get to the good stuff, a subtle improvement costs you a lot more, and some people can taste the difference. Others are happy with a cheaper bottle that tastes just fine”
I quite like this quote I came across on http://www.wired.com/2014/06/hi-lo-dslr-lenses/?mbid=social_fb as to whether you should buy the expensive lenses.
My lenses so far include the nifty fifty which is a great little cheap lens. Another rather cheap zoom 18-200mm from Tamron … the base 18 – 55mm lens that came with the camera and a 70-300mm sigma.
I initially wasn’t too happy with the Tamron lens but once I’ve given it a bit of time it’s a great little lens on a budget.
