Lenses!

What is your favorite lens and why?


My fave right now: Canon 85mm 1.2L I love it because it is super sharp and the bokeh is soo soo creamy! 


 


Taken at ISO 100 1/8000 f1.4

Beautiful shot!  I'm not into it far enough to warrant purchasing a prime lens yet :-(


Maybe someday :-)

Once you go prime you will be hooked! HOOOOKED. I started off with the canon50mm 1.4, the 28mm 1.8 and the 85mm 1.8 and just recently upgraded to the 85 1.2, 35 1.4 and the sigmalux 50mm 1.4 SWOOOON!

I'm sure I will, but for as little as I do, I just can't justify the expense right now. :-( 


I'm dying to upgrade!

I'm not great either...you need a tripod or soemething to rest the camera on! Even my breathing and just camera shake messes them up!

I love my Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L.  


I love my Canon photo 1103969-1


When I do portraits, it is just my workhorse.  It gets the job done so beautifully.  Just the right amount of zoom, fast enough to catch moving toddlers in relatively low lighting, when zoomed in makes loverly bokeh....Captures lovely scenary...I just love him.  Yes...it's a him.  His name is Hardy.  I have another smaller lens named Laurel. :P

Someone once told me you could turn your regular lens backwards and use it as a macro lens, but I've never tried it.


However, the first lens I would buy would be a macro, im obsessed with taking super close ups of little things.
