Three Excellent Lenses for Landscape Photography

Landscape photography allows for a wide range of lenses to be used to realize your creative vision, meaning photographers have a lot of choices available to them. If you are wondering which is right for your work, check out this fantastic video that features an experienced landscape photographer discussing three excellent options that will cover just about all of your needs without breaking bank. 

Coming to you from Photo Tom, this helpful video will show you three excellent lens choices for landscape photography, including the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM, 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM, and 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM. Though these are all Canon lenses, most manufacturers have equivalent lenses that would be equally appropriate choices. This thing to notice is that all of these are f/4 lenses. For landscape photography, an f/2.8 lens is rarely necessary, and you save significant amounts of money by going with f/4 versions instead. On top of that, f/4 lenses are much lighter and smaller, an important consideration when you are hiking a long way. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
