Camera Lenses Explained: Which camera lens suits which types of photography.

Camera lenses vary greatly, as do types of photography and types of camera. Certain focal lengths are more suitable for different subjects and some camera lenses have particular functions which appeal to particular requirements. Of course not only it is often difficult to know which camera lenses are most suitable for your requirements but also which camera lenses will fit onto your camera or into your system.

All types of photography favour a camera lens of some kind. There are multiple lens mount systems on the market, from the ubiquitous Canon lens mount (Canon EF and Canon EF-s) and the almost as large a range of Nikon lenses through to Sony and Sigma, Pentax and 4/3rds. Plus of course relative newcomers Micro 4/3rds and Samsung's NX fit.

You can use the table below to find a camera lens you could consider adding to your system. Of course if you require help or have any questions please do not hesitate to call our sales line on (01444) 237070 or mail us at sales@parkcameras.com
