So I got this, removed the optics, and turned it into a significantly bigger mug and shut my co-worker up.
$25,000 well spent.
Once I got the lens, I did some test shots and was able to click photos from across the Canadian border. One day, it just occurred to me what if I could find a location from where I can focus on one of Harvard University’s classrooms and may be record videos and self-educate myself. After months of searching, I finally found the perfect spot on top of a mountain. The amazing part is I have to zoom to complete 500 mm to have a good view. If you plan on doing the same, I would suggest keeping the aperture at f/14-plus since white boards at Harvard are quite big, and you don’t wanna miss the content due to shallow depth of field.
Now talking about the bas of this lens. I used to be super active, had six-pack abs and never stayed at home. After this lens, I have been doing most of my work from home. I have shot weddings, events and even baby showers right from my bed.Read more ›
Alas, it's large. Paraphrase that a bit better -- it's huge. It is virtually impossible to take rewarding photos without a heavy-duty tripod. It weighs about as much as my three year old son does. That being said, this lens is downright outstanding for nature, animal, or sport photographers. I personally used it for scenic photos, and it got the job done in a fashion never thought possible. I was able to take a photo of small birds from great distances in a way that I could see the specks of dirt on their feathers. Keep in mind, its not a considerably long focal range. 200mm in reality is not very long, but when used with a tele-convo, I can take pictures at focal lengths close to 1000mm. All in all, build quality is stellar.
When used on my 5D MII and 1D Mark III, I noticed the colors didn't pop as much as my other lenses, in particular the ones apart of the "L" series by Canon, but I did notice that this lens works great in a large array of light sources. At a mere f/2.8 or so, you can take pictures without having to worry about low light conditions. Obviously, larger light = clearer pictures.
If your looking for a great lens that portrays a great focal range, great build quality, and a nice companion for your (hence) professional photo career, this lens is for you. Its no small cost, obviously you all know that.Read more ›
