7-20-07 http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,2159669,00.asp Get a Good Camera Lens Virtually every one of our camera reviews mentions the millimeter range of the lens. If you're not familiar with photography, this makes no sense. Why measure a lens's abilities in such tiny degrees when everything it will photograph is feet, if not hundreds of yards, away from it? This is done because a lens's ability to capture clear images of the largest possible viewing area is directly related to focal length, which is, at least in part, a measure of its size. A bigger, more versatile lens, and one of higher quality, can almost instantly elevate the quality of your photos. For me, it has the same impact on lower-megapixel cameras that more RAM has on slower CPUs. These systems perform faster with more memory, just as cameras take better pictures with a bigger lens.
