As photography skills develop, you may become interested in using a wider variety of lenses for different types of shots. In addition to a standard lens some of the different types of lenses include wide angle lenses, macro lenses, fisheye lenses and short, medium and super telephoto lenses. If you have a DSLR or MIL (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens) Camera, then you'll be able to purchase additional lenses and swap them out for different types of photography and situations.
You should always check the compatibility of the Camera with the lenses you wish to use. DSLR Cameras and Mirrorless Cameras have different mounts, which means that lenses designed for one Camera type generally won’t work with the other type. Different lenses may also not be compatible with different Camera brands, even if the type of Camera is the same. Some manufacturers have lens converters that can be used to overcome this, although this can sometimes result in image cropping or loss in picture quality.
