We did some analysis of the Best Selling DSLR Lenses with our customers – based upon purchases made in the last 3 months.*

As usual this list is dominated by Canon and Nikon lenses so we’ve again broken those two brands out into two separate lists of lenses and then have put the other best selling lenses from other brands into a third list.

Interestingly by far the #1 lens in the last 3 months has been the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens which was released just this last month as a successor to their old Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Mark II which was released back in 1990 but which has always previously topped our best selling lens lists (it is #2 for the first time ever this month).

Note: at this stage we didn’t see any major trends in lenses for compact camera systems which is why we’ve not featured any hear. We expect this market to grow as the mirroless/compact system cameras continue to grow in popularity.
