Top 5 Favorite Photography Lenses | Vanessa Joy

RF 85MM F/2

This is the lens I'd recommend for amateurs and hobbyists who are just looking for an affordable prime lens to get some great shots with. It's a great lens for mothers who want to get some shots of the kids without spending a ton of money. As you know, it's hard to get kids to stay still, so photographing them requires a fast-focusing lens that can keep up with them. The 85mm provides that without breaking the bank. The focus isn't the only thing that needs to keep up with the kids. The five-step image stabilization system in the RF 85mm will help you get great shots of the kids even as you're on the move with them. Overall, this is a lens that's easy to use and shoot with and provides you with crisp shots even under less than ideal conditions. Now don’t get me wrong, the Canon RF 85mm 1.2 is an absolute dream, but I wanted to give you a favorite lens that was on the more budget-friendly side than a list of all the expensive gear. Be sure to check out Behind the Shutter’s YouTube page for a video of me using all of these lenses and a ton of images to check out.
