Best Beginner Lens For Wildlife Photography

What is the best beginner lens for wildlife photography? With so many brands, that have so many options and an option that suits everyone’s budget, where do you start?

Getting a good quality lens is key in taking great photos of wildlife. An entry-level camera body with a prime/professional lens will take better photos than a professional camera body and an entry-level lens. Obviously, the budget plays a key role in any first-time photographer’s search for the perfect lens. This is why I think that Canon’s EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L is II USM lens is hands down the best lens you can buy as a wildlife photography beginner.
