I like to take tons of pictures (most of which never make it to the Web, of course).

Photo equipment

After my first Canon EOS 1000 SLR, and half a dozen years with a Sony S-70 compact digital camera, I have been using a Canon EOS 50D and a Canon EOS 350D, along with some lenses.

My lenses (Canon mount)
Lens nameComments
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM ∅67Good and balanced lens. The IS works great.
Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM ∅72Fast and sharp lens, better-than-life pictures.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM ∅58A slight improvement over the 50 f/1.8, especially thanks to its better autofocus.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II ∅52Optically flawless (aside from bokeh), a great value lens.
Sigma 18-50mm f/3.5-5.6 DC ∅58Not a bad lens for the weight (and price!)
Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG ∅62All-in-one lens with its advantages and optical downsides. I don't use it any more.
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM ∅77Fun to use, and with not so much CA.
Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 Di II ∅67Sharp and colorful, useful range, macro abilities. A good all-around lens.
Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro ∅55Not bad, can do great shots in some circumstances, but not always easy to handle.
