About this topic:
Fall has arrived and with the christmas shopping season about a month away, I felt it was time to put out my picks for the best budget lenses for new photographers under $500 US Dollars. I base my suggestions on price and performance without exceeding $500 dollars. So while there may be cheaper lenses out there, these are my picks for the ones that perform the best in optical and build quality. I list both full frame(EF) and crop sensor(EF-S) lenses.
