Photographer's Eye

The 14-24mm f/2.8G gives me flexibility, when working in tight areas I can isolate a subject in a busy environment. Taking many sports photos from a distance requires super-wide angle zoom optics, and this product avoids the hassle of a 14, 20, and 24mm in the camera bag. For the horse racing picture the 14-24mm f/2.8G was set at 18mm. My favorite lens is the 70-200mm f/2.8G. The autofocus is quick and accurate I can be shooting a candid portrait then a moment later the peak of the action. The 70-200mm f/2.8G was set at 180mm for the pan movement cycling picture. The 300mm f/2.8G is light enough to shoot handheld making this an important long lens. The Synchronized swimming picture was shot wide open at f/2.8 to try to keep the background clear, handheld in the hand and lying on the edge of the swimming pool.
