Lens gears are toothed rings that mate up with external controls on a housing to alter
the settings (such as apertureThe variable diameter hole used to control the amount of light passing through a lens., zoom, and manual focus) on D-SLR lenses.
These gears either slip on for a tight push fit or are held in place by grub screws.
Many lens gears are interchangeable so you don't need to buy one for each lens but
continual swapping results in visible wear and tear to your lens that will reduce its
resale value. It is much better to buy gears for each lens and leave them on permanently.
