Vita Rara: A Life Uncommon

New Lenses


Categories: |

It's that time of year. It seems that in the spring I add lenses to my collection. In '05 it was a 50mm f/1.8, in '06 it was a 100mm f/2.8 Macro and a 17-40 f/4L. This year I added the Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS, and the EF 70-200 f/4L IS. These are both incredible lenses. I haunted the local brew pub, and hounded the cats for a few pics.

Here are a few:


Late evening shot. The sun has set and it's getting dark out. The image stabilization is great.


This one is a long exposure. I think it's a few seconds. The camera is sitting propped on a sugar packet dish.


This one is hand held at 1/13sec at 70mm. IS rocks!
