With over a dozen major camera brands and hundred of lenses to choose from – it can be hard as a beginner to know which lenses you need to get your dream photos! After years of trial and error, we’ve discovered our top 3 Favorite Camera Lenses under $2000!
Let’s get right into it! Our favorite lens (one that will stir the pot because of the apparent focusing issues) is our first lens ever – the Sigma 35mm 1.4 for Canon
This was our very first lens because of the entry price of $700. Half of you love it, half of you hate it – we must be extra lucky because we have two of these lenses! During engagement photo sessions and elopements, we’ll both shoot on a Canon 5D Mark IV and Sigma35mm 1.4 combo!
The Canon 24-70mm f2.8 is our safety lens (or should we say LAZY lens) because we use this when we’re unsure of how close we can get but also want a wide angle lens. At 24mm, you can get a dramatic landscape photo without warping your image into the fish eye effect, and you can zoom in to 70mm when close-ups are necessary!
At a price of $1600, this lens certainly is more expensive than the Sigma – but the zoom capabilities make the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 well worth the investment!
The Canon 70-200mm f2.8 comes in handy when there’s intimate moments like a kissing session on the beach (YOLO) or a vow exchange because you can give your subject the space they need to enjoy a moment without feeling like paparrazi!
This lens also comes in handy when photographing mountain landscapes because the depth of field at 200mm makes the mountains look HUGE – just look at this next photo of Yosemite National Park!
Thanks for enjoying this list of Our Top 3 Favorite Camera Lenses Under $2000! At the end of the day, the photographer is more important than the lens – and the most important camera/lens is the one you have on you…even if it’s your phone!
