No. You take good or bad pictures A good lens allows you to do what you want whether it is making soft portraits, ultrasharp landscapes or use flare, bokeh, vigneting or pseudo zoom effects to achieve a certain feeling/mood in your images. A fisheye is bad for traditional portraits, a slow lens is bad for low light street shooting etc eh? but that doesn't make them bad lenses altogether but its true a good lens to me is the one that lets me capture the mood I want a bad lens, whether its a Leitz or Sigma, doesn't. Second, a good lens is the one I have in my bag, a bad lens is the one thats always sitting on the shelf back home when Im out shooting no matter the reason e.g weight.
