Why is there an f/2.8 and f/4 version of the same lens? Is a fixed aperture lens better than a variable aperture lens? Is Image Stabilization worth the cost? I’ve got a “kit” lens, what should my next lens be?
These are just some of the questions photographers are grappling with when they are researching their next lens purchase. With over 80 lenses to choose from in the Canon EOS System, how does one make the right choice?
Whether you use EF or EF-S lenses, tonight’s class will give you valuable insight on choosing the right lenses for your needs. We’ll show how similar lenses differ from each other and explain why others are more expensive.
Canon Live Learning instructor, Dave Henry, will help simplify the choices, and provide sound advice on how to get the best possible images with different types of lenses.
We’ll explore the options and the power of Canon’s wide-angle, telephoto, and special-purpose lenses. And the emphasis for this seminar is on the lenses that are priced within reach of most photo enthusiasts, rather than exotic lenses that can be very expensive. This presentation is packed with great images and useful information, whether you’re a first-time DSLR user or an experienced enthusiast.
