If I wish to purchase a brand new digital camera, I exploit its mannequin quantity to have a look at assessment websites and movies, evaluate images on photograph web sites e.g. flickr and search on worth evaluating web sites and market locations the place I can discover the perfect service/worth ratio. I mainly do the identical as for television’s, energy drills and many others.
Nevertheless, when I’m searching for a brand new lens, I can by no means discover a mannequin quantity. What I can discover is a whole description the place each single half could be vital to uniquely establish the lens, e.g. aperture, focal size(s), picture stabilization, ed glass and many others. On prime of that some properties could also be written completely different on completely different web sites (e.g.
/f 1.2 vs
1:1,2). Some web sites add properties (like the colour) and different simply miss components of the outline (e.g.
G). Nevertheless, if one of many properties is completely different I could also be a totally completely different lens with completely different high quality, options and costs. To me, it’s extra logical to make use of a novel title, e.g. a mannequin quantity. Since this isn’t the best way the market has developed, there should be some benefit of utilizing descriptions for lenses. Nevertheless as a result of I don’t observe the benefit I’m afraid I don’t profit from it.
Can any individual clarify me what the distinction between lenses and different shopper electronics are?
