Best Telephoto Lens: BIG LENS SHOOTOUT

It’s time to turn that kit 18-135mm into a paperweight and get yourself a real telephoto lens. So you ask, what is the best telephoto lens? This is an important question because a good quality telephoto lens is a significant investment and should be preceded with a lot of research. Unlike choosing your next camera bag or lens accessory, the purchase of a telephoto lens is not something most of us can afford to get wrong.

A lens with a focal length of 135mm+ is typically considered 'telephoto' range, with 300mm+ being considered super telephoto
