I like frogs, and I know that I'm not the only photographer who does. If one owns a big, expensive supertelephoto lens, it is easy to use it for any subject that comes along, including skitish frogs. However, most of us will not find photographing frogs high enough on the justification list for the purchase of such a lenses.

Fortunately, there are two very affordable long focal length frog photography lens options available. Canon's RF 600mm F11 IS STM and RF 800mm F11 IS STM Lenses are able to nicely capture these subjects from non-threatening distances.

These lenses are simple to use — F/11 and be there simple. Having a single aperture setting available simplifies exposure settings, and the relatively deep depth of field makes keeping the subject in focus easy. These are aspects that casual photographers and beginners, including kids, can appreciate.

As always, we can expect some great Christmas shopping season deals this year. However, the supply of popular photography gear appears to be an overarching concern. Thus, consider applying this rule to your 2020 shopping.

If you want an item before Christmas, buy it now.

The large manufacturers already have solid instant savings programs in place. If that item is in stock, you know that you have secured it in time – it may be out of stock tomorrow.

If the item you want is not in stock now, ordering immediately gives you the best opportunity to get that item in time. If the item is in short supply (such as Canon RF Lenses), little or no discount is likely coming.

As a fall-back plan, if the item you purchased goes on sale for a lower price, contact the retailer to find out if they can make a price adjustment.

Dont forget that we rely on you to keep this site going, and your support is needed more than ever. Using our links before any purchase provides that required revenue. We are grateful for your support!

Get started at B&H.
