I had the opportunity to test out the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens. I absolute love the fact that it’s a fast lens and would love to have kept it. This is a great lens for portrait and food photography, but I don’t have that much money to buy lens just for that. I need a walk around lens and this fixed lens is not working out for me, I realized after shooting a few shots that I have very little control of what’s in the frame and have to move myself around just to get a shot. I knew that this will become a problem if I’m in a tight space and can’t move around like at the temple. The two photos below were taken with the EF85mm lens.
Then I decided to purchase the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens. I think it’s perfect for what I need, it’s lighter than my old lens. Since I have a crop body camera the 17-40mm focal length extends out to 27-64mm. These are the Ice plants in my front yard taken with the EF 17-40mm.
