Its popularity stems from its ability to capture scenes with a natural perspective, making it essential for street, portrait, and everyday photography. This helpful video overview takes a deep look at the best options out there.

The inclusion of manual and autofocus lenses in the review caters to a wide range of preferences, shooting styles, and budgets. Their insights include how different lenses render images, handle color, and control aberrations as well.
