Lens addiction is a bad thing for every photographer. Falling in love with every lens and buying or carrying for trip without any plans can lead to waste of time and money. Selecting the proper lenses is also a lonely decision. We get a lot of questions from our readers wondering which lens they should buy for particular type of genre. There are various lenses with so many features that figuring out the right one can seriously be difficult.

There is a reason manufacturers select such kit lenses and that reason is it makes the camera look good and don’t add much cost.
