I love gear. And I admit I have a problem: I spend way too much time coveting the latest and greatest instead of shooting photos or filming. One of the things I love to do is find people’s recommended gear list, especially for lenses. So to save you the trouble of hunting down other people’s lists, I’ll post a few of the lists that I think are pretty good.
- Which… lenses to buy? | Philip Bloom
Philip Bloom is one of the big voices out there for using DSLRs for video (when appropriate). His stuff is super informative and he’s a fun one to follow on twitter.
- Pimp Your Canon T2i/550D: Basic Lenses | Nino Leitner
I found Nino’s blog when he shot a short film with the new-at-the-time Rebel T2i/550D. This was right when I was considering getting one.
- My Gear: Lenses | Vincent Laforet
Vincent Laforet is director and an award-winning photographer. I really enjoy his blog.
- The Best Budget Lenses | The Photobloger
I came across this list sometime ago, but it was recently posted on Gizmodo.com. I think it’s great list for those of us on a budget.
