I am sure it has been asked before on this forum but I could not find the thread...
I am a novice photographer and still have a lot to learn about this field. Today I stopped at local Best Buy and was looking at their mediocre lens collection. A sales associate approached me and asked if he could help.... I asked him what does EFS - stands for on the lens - he told me : "It's just brand name" -----but the lens was by Cannon.... I asked him what the letters meant - then he replied "I have no idea. That's how they label lenses".....
mmm ok....sounded like he had no idea what he was talking about.
My question is...is there a guide somewhere on the Internet where you can view ALL lenses available (Sigma, Cannon) and samples of pictures next to them?
I visited Cannon's website and looked at lenses but many are lacking images like what you could achieve with some particular lens.
Also, what are short lenses and long ones? Some say "use short lens for quick captures" - those are 35mm? Lenses with "L" on them meaning long capture?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
