Is there a best lens for landscape photography?
A good photographer can get away with using almost any lens for photographing landscapes.
Wide-angle zoom lenses are the most common choice for most landscape photography for the simple fact that they offer amazing, in-the-field flexibility. Common wide-angle zoom lenses used are the 10-24mm, 16-35mm, 24-70mm, and the 70-200mm.
Prime lenses also make great lenses for landscapes. Some popular prime lenses for landscape photography are 14mm, 24mm, and 35mm. We’ve even seen photographers use a standard 50mm lens for landscape photography.
Whatever lens you already have, chances are you can make it work. After all, the best images come down to having a 1.) Clear Center of Interest; 2.) Composition; 3.) Focus and Exposure; 4.) Story; 5.) Lighting; 6.) Creativity and 7.) Uniqueness.
