It's such a simple question, but choosing the right lens or lenses is actually
one of the most important photographic decisions you can make. Nothing affects

Take in vast sweeping scenes with a wide angle lens. Capture faraway birds
with a telephoto lens. Examine the tiniest detail of a flower with a macro
lens. Record the perfect portrait with a prime lens. Anything is possible when
you choose the right lens for the job!
