There is this never ending love, you can even call it as lust when it comes to lenses and photographers. The Prime lenses, Telephoto Zoom lenses, and the Ultra wide fish eye lenses or the super power macro lenses, they have plenty to ponder on and to dream upon. But a photographer has to accept the fact that he cant be a master of all, remember always try to choose a lens taking into consideration the interest of photography. Not every lens would suit your kind of photography. The least said a clever photographer would invest on the lenses rather than the camera body itself. Here we wanted to kindle the photographer in you so we have put you the best lenses in business. Yes only the best!
