How To Buy A Camera Lens

Interesting article from Macworld.
If you purchased your digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) as part of a kit, you already have a basic lens that takes pretty good pictures. However, part of the attraction of this type of camera is that you can switch out lenses to get the best shot in any situation. From powerful zooms that get you up close to high-speed lenses that specialize in low-light settings, you have plenty of options for your second lens. While some lenses may go for more than you spent on your camera, you don’t have to pay a lot to get a great lens. The real question is: how do you find the right one for your needs?

In case anyone is wondering I've rented a Sigma 50-150mm lens for my upcoming trip to Costa Rica. If I like it I'm going to buy it.

Incidentally I find it kind of neat that a magazine that is primarily devoted to a computer platform and it's software also runs articles on photography.
