A Prime Example

Advantages: Low light performance, sharpness, colour saturation and contrast
Disadvantages: Plasticy construction and poor feel of manual focus ring

Overview ------------- The Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 sits in between the cheap-o f/1.8 mkII version and the ridiculously expensive f/1.2 L-series version. There was a crazy f/1.0L lens at one time but this seems to have been discontinued (presumably as nobod ...

Review of Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

Canon's sharpest zoom is a rock, or brick

Advantages: Awesomely sharp. Wide Aperture gives great control. Great colour.
Disadvantages: A little fragile. Would prefer with Image Stabiliser.

This is the professional photographer's portrait zoom lens of choice. The constant F/2.8 aperture across the zoom range provides excellent performance in low-light, and the best control over depth of field in any zoom lens on the market today. Lens pe ...

Review of Canon zoom lens - 24 mm - 70 mm F/2.8 for Canon EF

Review of Canon EF L USM wide-angle zoom lens - 17 - 40mm F/4.0

Wide angle fun with a capital F

Advantages: Solid build, great image quality, super-wide view
Disadvantages: f4 aperture doesn't give very deep bokeh

Overview ------------- I bought the EF 17-40 f4 L about 3 years ago in order to take urban landcape pictures, as buildings often don't fit into a 28mm "frame". This optic is the widest in the f4 constant aperture series of zoom lenses in the trio that ...
