New Lenses For The Camera

Posted on Sunday, June 25th, 2017 at 8:11 AM in Personal by Garstor

There was a serious combination of inspiration and envy on my part in The Netherlands. Zakhia and Dax had some amazing lenses for their cameras. As impressed as I am with the EOS 80D kit lens, these pieces of glass were jaw-dropping.

My new Canon lensesZakhia uses a Nikon and had a 70-300 mm telephoto. He was bringing objects at the end of a street into frame-filling glory. Similarly, Dax used a 70-200 mm on his Canon as well as a 50 mm Prime lens.

Once I got back home; I consulted with Dax on what lenses I should add to my camera bag. As you might expect, I essentially copied him. The EF 70-200 mm USM is really nice and I fully expect this to be the lens that stays on the camera body most often.

This lens was less expensive since I opted not to get image stabilization. That would have doubled the price.

At the recommendation of the clerk at Henry’s camera store, I also picked up the EF 50mm STM. This will make a great portrait lens since it has a shallow depth-of-field at f/1.8. Dax uses this to great effect with his street photography.

I’m still exploring the various types of photography to see where I want to focus (hahaha!!). I like the results of street photography but I can’t quite get over the voyeuristic aspects of it. I took a few pictures like that in Vondelpark but did not put them up on the Flickr album.

Hopefully the weather today is co-operative – there are thunderstorms forecast – and I can get outside to try these new toys out.
