I had been waiting for SEVERAL days via UPS to get my lens I rented for a week from www.lensrental.com (yes, you can rent camera lenses and other photography equipment online!!). No problem of the company, just some UPS hassle. Anyhoo, I haven’t had the chance to take photos of people (my main goal with this lens), but I’ve taken photos of a lot of other things! I plan to do 2-3 human photo shoots with it. It’s kinda an expensive lens (retails anywhere from $1500 to $2000) so I want to make sure I like it before I actually save up and invest in one. We’ll see what happens!!
This lens is a great overall midrange lens, great for portraits or scenery. It takes very crisp, sharp photos and has a really great focus on the little details. I’m going to have fun this week playing around with it! Here’s a review by Ken Rockwell if you want to learn more!
Until next time Swellions!
Wowza! I was very impressed by that lens until I saw the price tag. Yikes! Great idea to rent it. I only just heard about lens rental today and then happened to see your post about the same thing. Coincidence!
