LensHero - Picking a Good Camera Lens

The one question that I get most from my clients? What lens should I buy for my new DSLR?

I usually recommend the "nifty-fifty" lens that both Canon and Nikon have to offer.  It is very inexpensive (about $150), great in low-light and takes beautiful portraits.

I was pleased to learn that I now have another advice-option: the new website, LensHero, helps people pick the best lens for what they hope to shoot.  You can indicate whether you would like a zoom lens or prime, what your budget is and what your subject matter will be (portrait, macro, sports, etc).

Give it a try!  I think you'll find some cool new options.
