    It can be hard deciding on what camera lens is best. We are going to quickly cover a few tips that will help you.

    1. A good lens has sharpness around the edges as well as in the center
    2. A good lens can capture with sharpness at any focal length and at any aperture setting
    3. A good lens should control distortion well, meaning lines don’t appear curved inward or outward

    5. Good lenses should also have high contrast producing vibrant images
    6. The lens should also be able to overcome flares, this usually happen when the lens is pointed directly into a bright light source
    7. The lens also shouldn’t fade to blue or red as it time wears on the lens
    8. A good lens should also be fast and accurate no matter what the conditions are
