  • Considering how critical lenses selection is for DSLRs, surprised there are so few books. Maybe because most of the info is available on the internet, and after painfully scouring, I had most of what is covered in Mr. Hoddinott's book. Busch's Digital SLR Lenses book is more theory, than an aid for newbie trying to understand the impact of a particular lens.

    Knocked off a star because I still don't have a concrete idea what makes a good landscape lens. And it doesn't answer questions like: Which telephoto zoom would I rather have? 70-200? 70-300?

    Which I bought this book at the start of my lens search, because it would have provided a good foundation.

    If you are sticking w. the kit lens, no filters, or post processing software for your DSLR, don't bother.

    Curious about how to choose a lens for a particular subject matter? This book will help. Staying away from the kit lens, so this book will be my starting point for each new lens purchase.

  • This is a good resource for those of us who are advanced amateur photographers. It does not delve deeply into every aspect of optical physics, but it does provide reasonably succinct information about how to interpret lens specifications. For instance, it's probably got the clearest explanation on how to read a MTF chart that I've seen, without getting bogged down in overly technical mathematical formulas, etc.

    The pros of this book: Clearly written. Succinct. Not overly technical.

    The cons of this book: It's not a page turner . . . Plus, there are a few areas where I'd have liked to see a *bit* more technical explanations . . .

    The author is obviously a Nikon user, and many of his examples are Nikon specific or Nikon-centric (popular focal lengths, etc.). I don't want to open a Nikon vs. Canon debate here . . . It just creates a bit of cognitive dissonance for those of us who are Canon people.

    Overall a good buy to have on the shelf.

  • This book answered many question I had about photo setting & Lenses. . . Excellent, well written ! ! !

  • Excellent book

  • Gives you everything about Lenses from basics to somewhat detailed about Lenses. It was worth and I would be the updated version if they come out with one.

  • If one had never seen a camera lens, perhaps this might have useful information. I am trying hard to think what that useful information might be, but if it comes to later I will provide an update.

    (Yes, I know. And, I have no idea what possessed me in buying this book. I guess I thought there must be at least something in it.)

  • I do not own this book - picked it from a local library out of pure curiosity, and found myself really enjoying it.
    For me, it's an easy page turner, since I am both an optical engineer and a photograper. I really like the way the author explains complex things without diving into formulas or hard-core physics terminology, providing easy-to read diagrams, sketches, and illustrating his point with excellent photography.
    Also really enjoyed the fact that the author provides at least a brief review of four thirds system - as most photography books ignore it completely like it does not exist. Anyway, I am half-way through the book, glanced through the other half, and not disappointed.
    I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to achieve good results with their DSLR, as it is impossible to take good pictures without knowing your tool and its abilitied and limitations.

  • Extremely helpful in understanding different kinds of lenses. Ross Hoddinott did a good job in explaining the technical information in simple, easy to understand language. It was a pleasure to read because it was well written and the photos in the book are beautiful. I'm definitely going to check out his other books.
