There’s a huge range of lenses out there for all systems, so it’s not always easy to know which is the best lens for travel photography

In the video above Mitchell Kanashkevich goes over his opinion of what the best lens for travel photography is.

As with all things photography related, a lot of it comes down to personal choice and what works best for each individual person.

Things like budget and the type of photography you do are a huge factor in the final decision, but generally you will need something versatile so you can cut down on the number of lenses you travel with, and also something that is appropriate for your style.

Like Mitchell says in the video, most of the time you will find a zoom lens more beneficial than a prime due to its versatility. As a travel photographer the last thing you need is to be carrying around a whole bunch of primes.

Choosing photography equipment for any assignment or trip isn’t the easiest thing in the world but you’re choices will ultimately dictate how your end images turn out.
