New Glass

I recently upgraded the main camera rig to full frame as opposed to crop-factored. What this means, in English, is that I had to get some new lenses for the camera. I picked up a 12-24 f2.8 wide, a 24-70 f2.8 zoom and a 50mm f1.4 prime.

Although I had some nice glass before, these new lenses are not just a little bit better than the older stock of glass but dramatically better. Over the past week I made a number of test shots with each lens and when I brought them into Lightroom the difference in image quality, particularly sharpness, was dramatic.

I have heard it said so many times that if you want to drive an improvement in image quality, look to the lens and not necessarily the camera body. Faster glass and better optical performance does have an impact.

Life has been so busy lately that there is not much of an opportunity to shoot right now. I am hoping to get out to one of the provincial parks this week-end if time permits. The fall colours have arrived and it would be nice to break in the new rig.

    Actually, at the start, you did speak English. Just that some people might not understand and so you have to repeat it with different words.
