Why is there an f/2.8 and f/4 version of the same lens? 

Is a fixed aperture lens really better than a variable aperture lens? 

Is Image Stabilization worth the cost? 

I’ve got a “kit” lens, what should my next lens be? 

What does that red line mean? 

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 do you 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.

We’ll explore the options from wide-angle to telephoto, and even special-purpose lenses, focusing on the lenses that are priced within reach of most photo enthusiasts.
