Get proper lens with limited budget

In photography we always want to get perfect results, but sometimes we are limited by fund to buy gear such as a lens to support the great results. Here are some tips hopefully can inspire you to get the lenses according to your needs.

Select used or new lens properly

We can choose new or used lens through online facilities such as Ebay or Craigslist. But we need a little more to know about how to shop through online facilities in order not to be fooled or get the stuff that does not fit with what we expect. Thera many popular lenses available online new and used like the Canon 70-200's that can be obtained through quickly auction on the Ebay which only for $ 550 lightly used with great condition. While Canon lists the MSRP for the 70-200 f/4L USM at over $800. By this way you will be able to save up to 40% the cost of a new lens. But dont forget to void of any scratches on the body or glass.

Craigslist offers more than Ebay. Its transactions are more interactive and personal, and the possibility to see and try the lens before you actually buy it. It should be noted as cautious buying lenses from online retailers or web sites, matching the quality of such lenses are offered, and do not buy any lens with notable defects. If necessary add a small fee but get a much better lens.

Get the lenses according to your needs

A sports photographer will need more telephoto lenses than wide-angle lenses. Instead a landscape photographers should have more on the wide-angle lenses. A wide variety of lenses may be needed by a wedding photographer. So do not waste your money on lenses that you do not need. For the record that you had better get a pair of lenses that is really good compared to the five lenses that are less good, because of the picture quality is more mainstream than the number of images you can shoot.

The key to buying the right lens is the research on lens options are available and then choose the best of the available.
