Lens Hero

Getting a DSLR is relatively easy these days but picking a lens is a daunting task. There are so many different kinds and brands of lenses and it takes a lot of research to figure out the right type of lens to purchase, the selection is huge. What Lens Hero does is unravel this whole mess and give you a large selection with all the types of criteria that you could think of and then they tell you what the lenses are good for and its best and worst qualities. For any photographer this website has fantastic amount of information, I try not to look at it so I don’t purchase any more lenses, you can never have too many lenses.

Search & Adjustment Criteria:

  • Wide Angel Photo Length
  • Telephoto Focal Length
  • Price
  • Camera
  • Lens Type

Then they give you all the details of each specific lens when you look at the details of the lens.

  1. cool website. I did a lot of research on lenses and I think having the following 3 lenses will cover you almost fully:

    1. 18-55mm F2.8
    2. 70-200mm F2.8
    3. 50mm F1.4

    Get those 3, and I bet you wont need to visit this site again ;)

  2. thanks for sharing the site, just what I was looking for.

  3. Thank you for this reference site. Will be using it soon. Been thinking about the next purchase. The 70-200 has to wait a couple of years :) so need to buy something else to get excited about.
