So, how do different camera lenses affect photo quality?

Amateur photographers are always thinking about the number of megapixels and other factors like the camera body, but the lens is far more important. The camera lens has a greater impact on the photo quality than for example megapixels because a camera lens has a direct effect on the background blur, sharpness, level of detail, depth of field and these are just some of the more important parameters. In most cases, it is also better to have a high-end lens than an expensive camera body, because a good lens will make a huge difference, almost in every case when compared with a better camera that uses a kit lens.

How does the camera lens in fact work? The light strikes at the lens and enters the glass element of the lens. When light enters the lens it will always change direction or refract. Depending on the shape of the lens, the light will be directed differently, and it will give a different result at the end.

Some lenses will give you a wider image while some allow a closer zoom, but there are numerous types of lenses with different shapes and purposes, so you can easily find something that will suit you the most.

But, what about the impact of the lens on the photo quality, and how important is it to have a good quality lens? If you put it plain and simple, the camera lens allows the right amount of light to pass through it with the end result being properly illuminated and sharp photos.
