What Lens?

June 28, 2019  •  1 Comment

As KIND OF a follow up to Saving Money, of the lenses that you own, which one is your go to lens?  Which one is on your camera’s body the bulk of the time.  How many lenses do you own?  My go to lens is the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens.  The ONLY drawback to this lens I discuss in the link above.  It’s that it doesn’t perform at all in low light.  Since I particularly enjoy sunset and sunrise photography, I find myself having to carry my 24-70mm f.28 lens as well.  That makes my bag heavier.  I wish the 10-18mm had been an f2.8.  However that would have made the lens more expensive.  All trade offs.

Since the ONLY drawback is the underperformance in low light I can certainly live with it.  I truly believe that 10-18mm lens takes superior images for such an inexpensive lens.  And because I’m mostly a landscape photographer, wide angle lenses are my go to.  If you’re looking for an inexpensive wide angle lens, I said it before.  I don’t think you can go wrong with this lens if you can excuse the low light limitations.




In the meantime:
Focus on what's ahead of you.
