My Gear : Canon 35mm 1.4L Lens

Next up in my gear bag is the Canon 35 1.4L!  This is a new addition but I rented it first for my weddings in March to see if it would do what I wanted.  I planned the rental to cover the two weddings and an engagement session so I could make sure to give…

    Hi thanks for this great post. You really demonstrate the capabilities of the Canon 50L lens. I just got this lens and havent had time to use it yet.

    I agree with you 100%… use until you outgrow. I went SLOWLY in my upgrading… Currently, I have 50 1.2L, 100 2.8L Macro, and 24-70L. I really have NO OTHER lens needs right now.. since I am a portrait photographer more than a wedding photographer. It has taken me almost EIGHT years to have these 3 fantastic lenes.
