Interchangeable design variety - interchangeable lenses for Canon
The advantage of SLR and system cameras lies in the flexibility to use the appropriate lens for the situation via the bayonet mount and thus to exert considerable influence on the image composition. Of course, it is now possible to edit photos on the computer and add effects, but the choice of lens remains important for the quality of the shot. For example, a fixed focal length can be used to create successful macro or portrait shots thanks to depth of field and bokeh, without having to spend considerable time on the computer for post-processing afterwards. The selection of lenses available per camera system is large and confusing for the layman at first. For digital Canon cameras, there are currently three different mount options available. On single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras, models from the EF and EF-S series are used, while for system cameras (CSC) the has been developed. The are suitable for full frame, but also fit cameras with the that have an APS-C sensor. The EF-S lenses, on the other hand, are not suitable for cameras with a full-frame sensor. A rough distinction can be made between the lenses according to their type of use. Fixed focal lengths offer photographers a great deal of creative freedom via location variation, depth of field, bokeh and high light intensity; the latter is especially crucial in low ambient light. Macro and telephoto lenses are particularly suitable for close-up shots of flora and fauna and for portrait photography. Wide-angle lenses have become almost indispensable for landscape photography; with the fisheye, a wide-angle version exists that enables particularly creative shots indoors and outdoors. Zoom or megazoom lenses are the ideal choice when a change of location by the photographer is not feasible, or a large number of different focal lengths are to be covered. Special video lenses are also available that are particularly suited to the needs of motion capture. When shooting macro or without a tripod, the shutter release may cause minimal movement, resulting in a blurred image. Canon offers a lot of models with an image stabilizer (IS) for this purpose. Equally useful is the autofocus available on a lot of models, which makes it easier to select aperture, exposure and shutter speed, especially for beginners. Despite activated autofocus, the focus can be changed manually on USM lenses, STM versions even allow continuous automatic focusing in live view. In the premium segment, Canon offers the series of L lenses. These feature specially manufactured lenses made of higher quality glass compared to regular models, minimizing optical errors such as chromatic aberration and enabling higher speed. At the same time, the use of higher quality materials ensures that L lenses are mostly dust and splash resistant and have better image stabilizers. In addition to the models developed by Canon itself, the market also offers a wide range of lenses for Canon's EOS series from other manufacturers. Among the best known brands are , , , and Zeiss. Likewise, there are specialized suppliers such as for fisheye and video lenses.
