This title teaches the anatomy of the camera lens and its effect on the image in an accessible way. It offers concise, clear information for beginner to intermediate level photographers. It covers everything from focal length to specialist optics. It's very easy, when investing in new camera gear, to put all your energy into choosing the right body, only for that most crucial of factors - the lens - to become an almost secondary consideration. "Lenses for Digital SLRs: The Complete Guide", redresses that balance. Covering everything from focal length to depth of field, prime versus zoom lenses and specialist optics, this book manages to unravel the technicalities of lenses while remaining comprehensible and reader-friendly. Throughout the book, the reader is guided through basic terminology, common focal lengths, what optical quality means in terms of the photographs they take and eventually comes to understand the anatomy of the camera lens and its effect on the image.
