Answer by Ian
For wildlife, a longer lens like a 200mm or 300mm is often preferred so you can stay far enough away without disturbing the animals. If you are doing insects and such, then get a macro lens.
The difference between Canon and Nikon lenses is, well, you can only use them on Canon or Nikon cameras. Sigma and Tamron makes lenses for both Canon and Nikon. They are cheaper, but not necessarily inferior. I have heard alot of photographers say very good things about Sigma at least.
