Each camera of course comes with its lens and you are ready to take photos and hopefully to astound people with the images captured.
After a while, no matter how good you are, and how powerful your camera, you will want to extend the range and capability with different lenses.
According to WIX Photography, referenced below, there are different lenses for different aspirations in photography.
Among them they list lenses that are abstract and creative for the photographer with artistic flair, the wide angle lenses that are used by those photographers doing landscape photography as well as architecture, lenses that are good in portrait photography, street scenes, sports action, wild life and for those close up photos that capture every detail.
There are also lenses that can be tilted, lenses for zooming far distances, lenses good for creating an atmosphere and lenses that are considered fast or slow.
