What is the best beginner lens for wildlife photography? With so many brands, that have so many options and an option that suits everyone’s budget, where do you start?
Getting a good quality lens is key in taking great photos of wildlife. An entry-level camera body with a prime/professional lens will take better photos than a professional camera body and an entry-level lens.
Obviously, the budget plays a key role in any first-time photographer’s search for the perfect lens. Which is why I think that Canon’s EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L is II USM lens is hands down the best lens you can buy as a wildlife photography beginner.
