Hello Dreamstimers!It's me again, long time no see.This time, I would like to share with you my new equipment. A 18-50 mm f/2.8 Sigma lens that is just outstanding in every possible way considering the low cost. I even purchased mine used for about 220$!The main reason why I decided to buy this lens was because of my new and growing interest in event photography, more specifically nightclub photography. Now, there are a lot better lenses out there for this purpose but the 18-50mm Sigma... continue reading

What I think about the difference of Sigma Sigma 50mm and 105mm macro lenses is that with Sigma EX 105 / 2,8 DG OS HSM Macro avoids the insects fly away when you do not have to go so close to the object. After that you get a little more Dof dots out of focus when shooting with a higher focal value. continue reading
They say Kit lens is the beginner's lens. True it is. But I started my DSLR photography with a 50mm prime and since then I am madly in love with my magic lens! In fact I still do not own any kit lens! :DYou can do thousands of experiments with this much lighter weapon!The focal length is almost close to the perception of human eye. It covers the whole zone as your eye can see at once. Makes the picture more real. I never forget this tiny wonder when I go for street photography. Just apt for... continue reading
I would like to share something.... More then one year ago I traveled with some friends across Tanzania, Africa. I knew that this trip could get me a lot of nice images. However, I was affraid to take all my expensive camera equipment with me. This because people in Tanzania are not that rich compared to the country I live in, and I didn't want to give the people the motive to rob me or something like that. So I decided to only take my Canon EOS 400D body and the 50mm 1.8|| lens with me. Most Canon... continue reading
"A 50mm f/1.8 lens tends to cost in the $100-150 range—the same as a kit lens—while an f/1.4 lens costs at least twice as much. At their widest apertures, these lenses produce a very narrow depth of focus and create separation between subject and background (or foreground) that adds dimensionality to your photos for flattering portraits.There’s so little difference, spec-wise, between an f/1.4 and an f/1.8, but the difference in price is huge. How does that translate as far as image quality?... continue reading
Let me start off with a disclaimer, I am not in any way endorsing Canon or any of its products.This is just my personal opinion based on my personal experience with their product, particularly the humble 50mm 1.8II lens.The Canon 50mm 1.8II is not made up of any expensive material, doesn't have the bells and whistles that all the other lens have.As a matter of fact, once you hold it, you kinda get the feeling that it is not made for the working pro.It is made of plastic and feels flimsy.... continue reading
