    Is there a site or a youtube video that helps explain lenses in general. Like which ones to buy and which one for certain areas of photography?

    I think it's more of a question that you have to ask yourself. I want to acheive this effect, to get a tweety bird at 40 paces I need this focal length or have "this" amount of money. There are several other reasons to ask questions about lenses, but I dare say that one source is not available. It takes research. There's a ton of lenses out there and you need to figure out which direction you are leaning towards.

    For lens reviews, I trust these sites....
    photozone.de

    thomhogan (I shoot Nikon)
    fredmiranda

    There are many others of course, but that is a short list.
