DSLR is a camera with the size of a compact camera, but it has similar ability as a DSLR camera, which is often referred to as a mirrorless camera or DSLM camera (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) or often called mirrorless camera or MFT (Micro Four Thirds).

If you are a beginner in the world of photography you may want to have a new lens other than the kit lens that you get when buying a DSLR camera. Before you determine your fate as a photographer, then you must specify the fields of photography you want to do, whether traveling photography, scenic photography, architecture, model, fashion, macro photography, photography for weddings and so on.

Furthermore, you must understand the term of Focal length; As a photographer that leads to becoming a professional photographer, either as a hobby or for commercial needs, then you need to know the terms of focal length of your lens.
 Why?

The shorter the focus of a lens, then the width of the views obtained, or also called wide angle lens / wide angle lens. While more and more narrow focal length lens point of view but the higher the magnification of the object is recorded, or often referred to as a zoom lens. Judging from the focal length and usefulness, we can categorize the lens into several classes. Lenses can be categorized into several classes based on specific categories, among other things:

Standard lens.

Standard lenses usually have a focus 50 mm or 55 mm. At first the standard lens is also the default lens / lens kit when we buy a new camera. This type of lens is suitable for everyday needs in the shooting. However, Canon or Nikon lenses often provide default with 18mm zoom lens - 55 mm. This is certainly due to marketing reasons, so that the novice photographers who do not have a big budget, still can make images with a zoom lens without having to buy additional lenses.

Telephoto lenses.
Telephoto lens has a focal length of a lens (focal length) lens ranges from 85-200 mm. Long enough for you to take pictures of objects that are not too close to you, for example, a candid photograph of children who were playing without disturbing their game, or focus on a candid photograph dancer dancers among others.

Fix Lens and Zoom Lens.

Fix the lens is a lens that has a fixed value of focus, so that fixed lens or prime lens can not be used to zoom the object, meaning that you have to walk toward or away to zoom in / out objects. The advantages of this lens is smaller than the zoom lens, and the results obtained are sharper. 

Fix lens also has a wide opening so as to produce the effect of blur / bokeh better. Zoom lens has a focal range of different, eg focusing lens 18-135 mm. Excess zoom lens is flexibilty, in the lenses we can get the focus for wide angle and zoom lenses as well. The disadvantage is due to its large size, and the quality of sharpness results obtained are still below the fixed lens.

Wide and ultra wide angle.

The photographers who already have enough budget, usually will buy a wide angle lens or ultra wide angle lens. They need this lens can be more flexible in order to create a landscape photo or scenery. This lens has a focal of 35 mm or shorter. The wider viewing angle lens yan more and more objects are recorded, this type of lens is suitable for photographing scenery (landscape), buildings, activities that involve a lot of people like traditional ceremonies, dances, or a large family photo. In addition, a wide angle lens is very useful when you are close to the object you want to photograph. These lenses also provide 3-dimensional effect on the resulting image. Do you already have a wide angle lens?

Fix and Variable Aperture.

In addition to understanding the focal length, as a photographer then you need to understand fixed and variable aperture. That some lenses are also made with a fixed aperture, ie the aperture that can not be changed. Such lenses are usually worth relatively expensive compared to a lens with a variable aperture (aperture varying follow the focal length).

Super Telephoto lenses.

With a focal length of 300 - 800mm, extreme lens is suitable for photographing wildlife such as birds that were in the nest, or even perhaps photographing wild animals even without the need to position ourselves in danger approached. This type of lens is also frequently used in the world of sports. High cost and long shape and weight make this lens is usually only used by serious photography enthusiasts. If you want to become a professional photographer, then you need to save more money to get this lens.

Fast Lens.
The term given to the lens fast lens with a large aperture ability (aperture) is marked with a small f value (eg f / 2.8). With a large aperture opening that lets light into the camera becomes large, the effect is the ability to use a shutter speed high enough (so-called fast lens) in conditions of low light / dark to avoid blur objects (especially a moving object, for example a dancer dancing at night with a torch light). Hence, this lens is very well used in lighting conditions that are less without having to lower the shutter speed and raising the ISO, so that the results would have been better than ordinary lenses. In addition, the effect of large aperture also raises the depth of field becomes narrow, so you can make the blur / bokeh in the background of photos with more ease and better.

Super Telephoto lenses.

With a focal length of 300 - 800mm, extreme lens is suitable for photographing wildlife such as birds that were in the nest, or even perhaps photographing wild animals even without the need to position ourselves in danger approached.

Firstly, ask yourself: what your purposes. ask yourself: what your purposes. Is it only for the purpose of photographing as a regular traveler, or with a special interest for example photographing scenery (wide angle lens is better), or wildlife (requires a super telephoto lens or telephoto). Some tips and other solutions that you can consider before buying lenses, among others:

1. A faster lens is better than slower lenses. Choose a lens with an f as small as possible.
2. The lens with a fixed aperture (f value fixed) better, although these lenses are usually expensive.
3. Fix lens (lens with fixed focal) has sharper results, but the zoom lens is more flexible in taking quick atmosphere of a place without you having to move back and forth so it is very likely you will lose the desired moment.
4. Consider also the quality of the lens material if you have more funds. Some upper-class lenses made with good materials and even resistant to weather changes.
5. Before buying lenses, make sure you choose the lens fits your budget and your needs.
6. If you are using a Canon or Nikon camera, you do not be swayed by advertising or opinion on the original lens Canon vs. Nikon lenses original. You are free to choose a third-party lens, like the lens manufactured by Tamron, Sigma or Tokina. You have to pay attention to your budget, because a great photograph is made by the photographer himself, not only because of just an expensive lens or camera.

If your budget is not enough to buy the original lens OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) that corresponds to your camera, then you can buy a used lens or lenses are manufactured by third parties Tamron, Sigma, Tokina or Samyang. Now Sigma or Tamron has produced special lens for Canon, Sony or Nikon with good quality. Tokina and Samyang also been producing high quality for special and specific needs. If the Sigma and Tamron has produced almost all types of lenses, the Samyang and Tokina more make unique lens that may not have been made by Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Sony or any other plant like Carl Zeiz lens, Leica, Olympus, Panasonic or by Sigma and Tamron.
