Cheap Camera Lenses

by eng.izajJuly 11, 2017

It’s often said that you should invest in glass rather than camera bodies, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend a small fortune to get a high-quality lens. In fact, you can get a range of top lenses for less than £300, from simple primes, macros and all-in-one superzoom options to more exotic fisheye and pancake flavours. So, whether you fancy supplementing your own existing kit or giving the Canon user in your life a pleasant surprise, here are ten great affordable options.
