Zoom vs. Prime, who is the winner?

Should i purchase a 24-70mm lens or maybe go with two different lenses covering this range? That question has definitely been in your head when trying to figure out what lenses to buy. The answer is not simple but it comes down to what type of photography you will use a zoom or a prime lens for.Shot on Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM lensA Prime (fixed focal lens) is, well, a fixed focal lens that some people might see as limiting, but it compensates that limitation... continue reading

First accepted image from new lens bought from first payout

A short while ago my balance went over the magic $100 for the first time and I was able to request a payout.

That arrived this morning - I have not even opened the box yet. I bought that for the macro facility, and also for the lightness and image quality... continue reading

It's all about the children

Traveling with the Canon 50mm 1.8|| (no zoom)

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

Review: 70-200 4L USM

I debated long and hard before buying this lense.It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before.And what I really wanted was the f2.8.But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost.Plus, it was heavier to lug around and I love going outdoors and getting nature shots.So, I compromised and treated my self to the f4.To help you understand where my review might or might not fit your skill level and... continue reading

Why zooms rock (Part 2)

A while ago, I did a blog on prime lenses and their strengths - but there is still a case for zooms:1. When you can't move or can't get closer!People often refer to 'sneaker zoom' with prime lenses - meaning they walk closer or further to adjust framing.That is great if you have the option, but try moving a little closer when standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon - or even getting closer to get a photo at the kid's Christmas concert.2. To keep the camera sealed.In bad weather or... continue reading
