Danedlion's....in a different light.

4 posts in this topic

Decided to have yet another go at the dandelions, only this time in a different light.

Taken with my Canon 70-200, 1:2.8L IS series. Very impressive lens, however when it comes to shooting many nature pic's such as birds or wildlife in general, it's simply to short on range... My next purchase will be the 100-400 for sure!

Sweet work, Stu. The second one in particular is a great statement of light.

Also, the 70-200 makes a sweet macro-style lens if you buy a set of Kenko extension tubes (about $150). The three tubes, either all of them or some of them in combination, push the lens farther out from the camera, allowing it to focus much more closely than before. Because they are hollow they have no impact on image quality like a TC does. You lose the ability to focus on things farther out when the tubes are mounted.

Thanks Steve! I'll keep that info on the back burners for sure!
