Best lenses for canon 7D

QUESTION: “What are the best lenses for the canon 7D?” – Mike, Boston MA

ANSWER: According to Canon’s website the Canon EOS 7D is compatible with more than 60 Canon EF and EF-S lenses. These include these often used lenses:

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens

Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens (Non-IS)

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens

Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Lens

Canon make many fine lenses, so it’s fair to say the best lens for your Canon 7D is the lens that will get the job done. If you want to do landscape there are many lens to choose from. For example, some people like the EF 17-40mm f/4L USM for landscape and others prefer the 24-70mm f/2.8L USM. For portraiture some prefer a fixed lens like the 85mm f/1.8 EF USM Autofocus Lens while others like the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM zoom lens.

Before you select a lens for a particular job, find out what others are saying about that lens. Read the reviews at Amazon or B&H Photo or go to a Canon Forum like Photography-on-the.net.

    I am amazed the Canon website omitted the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM. It is probably better than all the lenses listed of a similar focal range, and accordingly more expensive. An ideal match for the 7D.
