Shot with the Canon 8-15mm lens.
I really don’t like the distortion around the edges and regret using this lens.
I own this lens but rarely use it.  It is not a “sharp” lens.

Canon 16-35mm at Santa Monica Pier

My favorite lens is the Canon 24mm and yet I did not bring it on this shoot.  Sometimes the “favorite” lens just doesn’t fit in the kit
and tough decisions have to be made.

I only had room for 3 lens and two bodies on this trip.  I brought the Canon 16-35, Canon 100mm Macro and the Canon MP-E 65mm macro.

These lens matched on the Canon 5D (full frame) and the Canon 7D (1.6 crop sensor) give me great range of  16-56MM and 100-160mm

This kit will be good for landscapes, portraits and of course remarkable macro shots.

I have also brought two flashes including Canon’s macro MR-14EX ring flash.

The above shot was taken from Lowes hotel, 7th floor, Santa Monica using the 16-35 on the Canon 5D.
