At Lenshero you start the search process by specifying the camera you are shopping for and your budget. You then further narrow the search by indicating what kind of photography you need the lens for such as landscape, portrait, low-light, sports, or other situations. Lenshero kicks back search results that include specs on the lenses like whether or not it has a focus motor, the minimum and maximum focal length, minimum aperture, and more.
Click on an individual lens for a more detailed view including reviews, compatibility charts, how the angle of view changes on DSLRs with full frame sensors and without—seen in the screenshot above—and how it compares to other similar lenses. Although you’ll still want to do some more research before plunking down $US500+ for a new lens, Lenshero will help you cut through the sheer number of lenses out there to find the few you want to read more about.
