The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM Lens is one of the most amazing zoom lens I have ever used. Firstly, getting the actual lens to my house took an excruciating six weeks. I suppose it was the extreme popularity of it that took so long. However, when it arrived I was thrilled. I remember when I first opened it. Being a photographer, I was awaiting this delivery in order to get a project I had been working on. I opened it and immediately wiped it off, inspected it to make sure everything was all right and then I put it on my Canon. I ran outside, it was about twelve o' clock, and zoomed into my neighbor's yard and took one of the most amazing pictures of a caterpillar sitting on one of her plants, just by peeking through our picket white fence.
I had to take it to my high school basketball game to give it a whirl. I then had found a new appreciation for sports. I haven't missed a game since. They love my photos! I heard the remarks about the extremity of the sharpness of my photos. Little did they know, it was all thanks to my wonderful lens. The f/2.8 minimum has made such an impact on the fastness and stillness of my sports shots. I am looking forward to baseball season. This zoom focal length has given me outstanding and countless opportunities.
This Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM lens actually compliments a plethora of other equipment I have for my Canon. The 24-70 L has a magnification of 0.29x at 70mm. With that I added different effects like vignettes and extension tubes and so many more. They really added a neat and new twist to my normal clean cut focused pictures. Now I walk with pride when carrying my new lens. I have absolutely fallen in love with it.
The project I was speaking of earlier was one of my first portrait shots. It portrayed a little boy. However, this little boy looked exuberant along with the zoom lens. Focusing on his amazing freckles, thanks to the great lens, I accomplished a completely different goal. I got my typical commercial shots with it and also accomplished a great artsy piece that I have made quite a selling to a few fans. That is what is so great about the lens. The versatility has brought a brand new addition to my photography portfolio and is a great way to satisfy everyone's photography preference, artistic or commercial.
A couple of weekends I let an acquaintance of mine take it with her for a wedding shoot in Florida. Wow. She said it was one of two lenses she used the whole time. Out of 14 lens she brought it was one of two worthy of wedding use, in Florida. I was in awe. This lens is so versatile it can even take amazing wedding shots. While she was there, she also took amazing scenery shots.
Without a single complication, the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM Lens has made my photographing life easier.
