John’s Top Tip:
“When choosing kit – whether it’s buying equipment or choosing what to shoot with, your priority should always be your lenses! Buy and choose to use the best lenses you can. Good fast lenses make even the most basic entry level camera deliver its best results and conversely, more basic lenses will handicap the most glamorous camera body (good lenses hold their value too!). Your priority should always be the best lenses.”
