It is that time in my life that I upgrade my beauty camera with a lens.
I am looking at a few options and here is what I have narrowed them down to.
What I want from a Lens: A lens that will allow me to zoom in and take portrait pictures and close-up shots of my surroundings.
1. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens – Retail Price $125.00
Description: The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II is a compact and high-performance, standard telephoto lens. Its Gaussian optics provide sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances. The color balance is excellent for a standard lens
2.Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens – Retail Price $420.00
Description: This Standard and Medium Telephoto Lens provides you with the image closest to how your eye perceives the subject and are excellent for portraits and for giving images a natural depth of field. The Canon EF85mm f/1.8 USM is a highly practical medium telephoto lens with superb delineation and portability. The lens provides images that are sharp and clear at all apertures. Through computer simulations, the lens has been designed to give beautiful background blur. Since the front lens group does not rotate during focusing, special filter effects are not affected.
Anyone of you have a Canon DSL camera? What must have lenses do you recommend?
