“In photography there is a
reality so subtle that it
becomes more real than
– Alfred Stieglitz

1) Zoom Lens
▫ Lenses with zoom feature, as the
name implies.
▫ Convenient lens to use. No need
to go on frenzy to change lenses.
▫ Zoom lenses may be convenient,
but they are more complex
▫ May break if the zoom mechanism
is badly designed or have poor

2) Prime Lens
▫ Opposite of zoom lens. Prime
lenses have fixed focal length.
▫ But without zoom mechanics,
prime lenses are generally less
complicated and more well-built.
▫ Prime lenses also typically last
longer than zoom lenses.


3) Wide-Angle Lens
▫ Lenses that are capable of
capturing a wide angle of view.
▫ Normally around the focal length
range of 16-35mm.
▫ Good for landscape and
environmental portrait
▫ Good for tall buildings.


4) Normal/General Lens
▫ Focal length range of about 3550mm; Also close to our human
▫ Generally used for almost
everything – Casual, street,
portrait, food, products, etc…
▫ Don’t really have disadvantages,
just a generic range of lens.


5) Telephoto
▫ The “bazooka” lens. Big and bulky.
▫ Capable of shooting things far far
▫ Normally used by nature and
wildlife photographers who do not
want to disturb the animals.
▫ Also sometimes used by sports
photographers, because they
cannot get too close to the action.


6) Macro
▫ Made to focus up close.
▫ Somewhat like a microscope.
▫ Used to take close up shots of
insects, flowers and products.
▫ Opens up a new world of
photography, otherwise invisible to
the naked eye.
