Big Brother has arrived!
Time to say goodbye to my good old kit lens. This lens really serves me well. After 7 months of using it, I gained a lot of skills and captured several good photos from various places that we have gone through.
Big Brother has arrived! Just got my new Canon EF-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM from John 3:16.
* Max aperture: f/3.5 – 5.6
* With ring USM motor and IS
* Filter size: 72 mm
Because of its wide range of focal length, it will be a good “walk-around” lens. Better for landscape shooting, although 10-22mm lens is still the best. I can’t wait to test it out!
I also got myself a Hoya ND8 Filter for creating a smoke-like effect on water and sky.
The use of an ND (Neutral Density) filter allows you to utilize a larger aperture that is at or below the diffraction limit, which varies depending on the size of the sensory medium (film or digital) and for many cameras, is between f/8 and f/11, with smaller sensory medium sizes needing larger sized apertures, and larger ones able to use smaller apertures.
And of course, the upgrade will not be completed without this EW-78E Lens Hood. Serves as a protection from direct hit of sun light, scratches and bumps.
