Prime vs. Zoom Lens

A prime lens is one with a fixed focal length. These are considered a higher quality type of lens, which takes clearer photos. They’re also lightweight and more affordable than a zoom lens. In comparison, zoom lenses provide more flexibility, and they’re the more commonly sold type of camera lenses on the market today.

What Focal Length Should I Look For?

Focal length, measured in millimeters, is the distance from a camera’s lens to the sensor inside it. Consider the type of photography you do when choosing your lens. If you’re shooting objects that are far away, for example, you’ll need a longer focal length lens, such as a telephoto lens. Lenses sold on the market as wide-angle often feature a focal length between 17mm and 40mm.

What Other Types of Lenses Are Available?

Other types of lenses are available to suit other aspects of visual photography. These include:

  • Fisheye, with focal length of less than 15mm
  • Macro, used for extreme close-up photography
  • Special effects
  • Digital cinema lenses, for shooting video
