Best lenses for cosplay photography

Zoom Lenses We Use At Cosplay Conventions

We get a lot of questions asking us, “What is the best lens for cosplay photography?” There is no right answer for this. It’s really all up to you and your preference, but we decided to talk about zoom lenses (prime lens video to come soon) and talk about their pros and cons in terms of using them at conventions. (Links to lenses we use and lenses we suggest are below the video!)
