    Default Newbie needs help.

    Hi all,

    I bought my canon 550d kit a month back.
    As, i got quite some questions to ask.
    Please pardon me and Thanks in advance.

    -what lens can zoom to a far distance for shot?

    -Whats the difference between lens?
    Eg, telephoto zoom and macro ?

    -whats the Eg, 100mm thing about?
    My standing distance to the zoom out distance?
    Like, Im at point A, i can zoom up to a maximum of 100mm out to take my shots?

    -whats the Eg, F2.8 all about?
    The lower the number the more you can zoom ?

    -whats the difference about macro capable and macro lens?

    -If it possible to add lens to macro lens?
    Eg, i got myself a macro lens, and can i buy raynox 250 and attach it to the macro lens? Will it be clearer?

    1. Read your manual. A lot of this is covered.
    2. Read the many "photography for newbies" books in the library, and also the Newbie FAQs here. Your questions are as elementary as it gets - aperture, focal length, the effects thereof are things most people already learn with compact cameras. Again, this is in your manual too.
    3. Learn about google. It's an invaluable tool for answering your kind of questions.

    All your answers can be answer by reading a book from a library or in the guides in this forum. Here's a guide to start you off with:

    Its more fun when you read and experiment for yourself.

    One thing the guide might not cover, macro capable lenses are lenses that can focus close but not that close as to be considered a true macro lens, which can obtain 1:1 magnification.
