Best Buy customers often prefer the following products when searching for modern lenses.

With the advent of digital photography, photographers are now presented with a wide variety of lens options. Lenses can be categorized as either "Prime" lenses or "Zoom" lenses. A prime lens is a fixed focal length lens, which means that the photographer can not zoom in on an object or zoom out from an object. A zoom lens on the other hand, allows the photographer to zoom in and out of an object. Here are some of the best modern lenses on the market today.
