Gives you guidance about different lenses from basics to somewhat detailed information. Ross Hoddinott did a good job in explaining the technical information in simple, easy to understand language. It may be of use to someone who is starting out in photography, but that would be it. Mr Hoddinott is obviously a user of a Nikon system, by the terminology he uses. Nice to have on the shelf for reference.

This neat little book will be useful to beginning beginners, and as always Ross Hoddinot's photographs are spendid. Sadly, Hoddinot's writing nowhere near matches the quality and sharpness of his images. It conforms to the beginner's book format of one basic idea per page (more or less) and the information is almost standardised lacking really useful detail. I was disappointed that I did not learn much as an advanced beginner.

A camera's nothing without lenses and many books fail to cover this in enough depth. This is very nicely written and published with great photos and examples.

I think this is one book that every Digital SLR camera owner should own if they are serious about wanting to learn about photography.

An excellent guide to lenses for the novice (like me). The prose style is clear and does not patronise. The book is in full colour with clear black and white diagrams where needed. Thoroughly recommended.

This book is small and valuable, as it gives expert views on lens selection and uses of various Techniques of buying and using SLR lenses I would recomend it to anyone interested in developing their use of SLR camera's and lenses!
