    Hello. The more I read your site, the more doubt I have))). Your advice on optics is very necessary. I have optics 50 1/8, 35 1/8, so I think it's worth changing 50 1/8 to 50 1/4 and buying 85 1/8, and I'm also very interested in which lens to take, which is not very expensive with a constant aperture and 17 to 70 mm?

    Good day, Arkady. Like most readers of your articles, I am very grateful to you for such an understandable topic. Nothing superfluous, everything is concrete and understandable. Thank you for that. I ask you for advice. I need a fast zoom lens for my Nikon D800. Needed in order to shoot portraits, perhaps landscapes, small groups of people. I currently use AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm 1: 3,5 - 5,6 G ED.

      Portraits, landscapes and companies of people are very different directions. From aperture for a portrait 70-200 2.8 is good, for groups of people 24-70 2,8. For landscapes 16-35 4.0

    Good afternoon, Arkady. Please advise the lens for nikon 3100. I rent children everywhere and always: for a walk, at home, day and evening. I try to use the flash less, but it doesn’t always work out clearly. I also don't have enough zoom. But from very expensive advise. And further. For some reason, the settings get lost when I switch from one mode to another. For example, from a portrait in a car.

    Good day Arkady.
    Your resource enlightened me very much in matters of photographic equipment and lenses, thank you very much for that.
    I think I’ll take a Canon 600 \ 650, the whale lens offers 18-55 with and without a stabilizer. The difference in price is 400 UAH. Not that much, but does it make sense to overpay for the stabilizer on the lens with such an angle?
    maybe it’s better to take 18-55 without a stabilizer, and add the difference to the purchase of a 70-300 lens?

    With uv. Evgeny

    Greetings Arkady. I bought a Pentax k-30 with kit 18-55 AL. I have old Industar and Helios lenses, but for some reason I can’t catch the sharpness. The viewfinder is normal, but the result is “soapy”.

    Hi Arkady! I'm interested in your opinion about the wide-angle nozzles that are wound around the lens, I'm sure you had to experience this. Thanks.

    Hello, Arkady. On my nikon d3100 at the moment the lens is Nikon 18-105mm f / 3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX NIKKOR, I want a faster lens, with a better picture, better bokeh lens. There is also a Helius 81n / 2.0, but it is only for unhurried filming. I stopped at the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM, first I wanted the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50 mm f / 1,8G, but I realized that sometimes the zoom is ok, and the wide angle is in demand. Can you advise more options. Sincerely, Igor. And thanks for the interesting side!

    Tell me, is it worth changing the 18-55 kit to the 18-105 kit or tell me which lens to add the 18 camera to the 55-3100, or your version of the lens for shooting children, portrait, landscape.

    Hello! Advise a crop camera (I tend to Nikon D90, but I will consider your advice for both Nikon and Canon) and a fixed lens. purpose of shooting: newborn babies in ordinary apartments (without flash and the ability to move far from the subject). interested in close-ups. tell me a normal lens, not the cheapest, but not exorbitantly expensive ...

    Good day, Arkady! Very interesting article, thank you very much. I have a question for you: we bought a Canon 500d body, we don’t know which lens to take, in principle, the budget allows us to take more expensive, we are amateur photographers, but we are thinking about developing and therefore I want to immediately take a good one for nature photography and portraits. Please advise. Thank you in advance

    Thanks for your answer, anonymous! Another question: does it make sense to take a Nikon 5200 carcass (fresh version) instead of the outdated d90? After all, the af-s lens will focus on 5200, so why do we need motor carcasses? if they advise taking af-s lenses, but they do not advise more affordable af ... I got confused in 3 pines - in d90, d7000 and d5200 ...

    Elena, it’s better to spend money on a good lens and flash, and you can make great pictures with Nikon 3100! For myself, Nikon 3200 would take.

    For my purposes (described above) I was advised Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50 mm f / 1,8G, ... please explain why 35 1.8 is worse for these purposes (shooting newborn close-ups)? It's just that some people advise him, like 50 is a lot and inconvenient, and 35 is just right ... or at 35 I won't take a close-up? Forgive me for such primitive questions, there is no way to try everything in practice, so I ask you to go and buy and understand ...
