Photographer's Eye

The 12-24mm f/4G was the lens I shot with the most. I was surprised this was the case because I'm often shooting on fixed 50mm lenses. I shot some close up portraits with it at very high ISO that hold up very well! I used 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G quite a bit too. I shot a lot of texture and colour with this one, the zoom is great and the quality of the final file is just as great. When I was in a farm in upstate NY, with its vast, wide open space, I used the 10.5mm f/2.8G to see how much I could fit into a frame. Turns out, I could fit a lot of information.
