As many amazing new cameras as we've seen lately, we've seen just as many inventive new camera lenses to go with them.  

The EOS R system is rapidly maturing with optics like the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM and the double-duty Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM that's as perfect for portraits as it is for miniatures.

Then there are new twists on familiar formulas, like the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD (which is half the weight and two-thirds the length of 70-200mm trinities), and the essential Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art.

With all this great new glass, though, the big question is which lenses are the photo public actually buying? Well, as we ready for Amazon Prime Day 2020 next week, the retailer has rounded up the best-selling new lens optics – and one of them is sure to be a massive surprise!

1) Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art
