    Hey Oxfordschoolofphotography,
    Thanks for your thoughts Before commencing buying Canon lenses you ought to be knowledgeable about lens terminology. Some of the terminology is unique to Canon. Other camera manufacturers have their own too. Canon and Nikon are the most in-demand camera makes. There are two main categories of lenses.. Prime lenses use a fixed focal length. Zoom lenses make use of a variable focal length. The quality of photos you want as well as your budget will determine the kinds of lenses you will buy.
    Kindest Regards
