good teaching method i have ever come across.I had to rewind the tape for the 1st answer as i did not pay much attention. There on i listened very carefully. I am a user of 50 500 mm sigma lens.I am happy with that.
Phillip McCordall
Thanks, the 50-500 gives you an enormous range, I must say I've never seen or tried one but Sigma make very good lenses

It was a helpful video... I would like to know about what lense to get for the type of pics i like to take
Phillip McCordall
Well what type of pics do you like to take :)))
Luisa r
I like to take close pictures specially of people... I like depth of field... But sometimes i don't like to use the zoom because it looks different than when you're actually close to the object... And at the time if you're too close and is a person you're taking the pic of, they don't act naturally...so I was wondering if there was a type of lenses that would give you the sensation of a close up without not being that close... If that make any sense... :))
