What is your Favorite DSLR Lens – and Why?
This question must be in the top 5 questions that I’m asked each week by readers – so I thought it might be useful to have a post asking it that I can point people to.
So what lens or lenses are in your ‘must have’ basket?
Please include the manufacturer’s name, the lens focal length and even the aperture range if you know it so that we know what lens you’re talking about. Then also tell us what you like about it (ie is it the focal length, its sharpness, it’s price, its aperture range…. etc).
Looking forward to reading your answers.
PS: I’ll kick things off – that’s a picture of my favorite to the left – it’s a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM.
I love it because it’s focal length makes it an ideal walk around lens, it’s super sharp and the Image Stabilization gives me another stop or two for low light situations. If I had a wishlist for it it would be that it was f/2.8 and hadn’t cost me quite as much as it did!
Update: I’ve summarized the lenses suggested in this list of Popular DSLR Lenses.
