WHICH LENS IS BEST?
If you think that choosing a camera presents you with too many choices, then try choosing your lenses!
For every camera that uses inter-changeable lenses there is a range of manual and/or auto-focus alternatives. In addition, there are independent manufacturers that make lenses that will fit a variety of cameras.
In order to make a sensible lens choice, there are a number of factors to bear in mind. Read items 1-6 on the Gear page as these apply to buying lenses as well as cameras.
In order to make this page manageable, it has been structured so that you can find the lenses for your camera quickly. For each camera manufacturer, there is a selection of lenses from that same manufacturer, and a selection from an independent lens maker. (I have only included lenses that rate high in lens reviews.)
The length of this list will grow as my research continues.
Initially, the list starts with Sony CSC camera lenses. It shows the lens focal length and maximum aperture in the following way: focal length/maximum aperture (e.g. 35/1.4).

CANON LENSES FOR CANON CAMERAS
There are four classes of Canon lenses: EF (for the Professional and Upwardly mobile enthusiast), EF-S (for the enthusiast and beginner). EF-M (for the M-Series cameras), and the latest RF lenses for future compatibilities.
The table (below) is an example of the huge range of lenses that Canon provide. The table only features EF - type lenses.
Within this group, there are some lenses that are designated as "L" lenses. These L lenses are top quality and are of the kind used by (most?) professionals.
