The New Lens
This week I acquired my first L-series Canon lens: a Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L II USM. It has roughly the same equivalent focal length as my old 10-22mm on the crop-sensor Rebel body that I used to have, but is quite a bit faster and unbelievably heavy. I didn’t really realize how heavy my new setup is until I rode home with it on my back on Thursday for the first time. At 1.45 kilograms (3.2 pounds) it definitely weighs down on me after an hour or so on the bike… Anyway, managed to score an amazing sunrise on Thursday just after I hopped off the ferry, the clouds made for some great shots as the sun was rising over the Oakland Hills.
