When I teaching my photography 101 classes, Shooting in Manual Mode, I'm often asked which lens I use the most; which lens would I recommend? I have a few that I really like, but as far as a good all around lens, I grab my Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens! If I could only carry one lens with me on a shoot, this bad boy would be my pick and it's available here!
So I have to tell you something ... for about the past 6 months I was having a few issues with the sharpness and clarity with this lens. I was getting frustrated and yet all the photographers I talked to about the issues, just sort of brushed me off.
So last week I jumped in my car and headed to the New Canon Service Center here in Costa Mesa. After chatting with one of the helpers and explaining my issues, off my lens went to be 'repaired'.
I just returned from picking up my lens and I could cry happy tears! My lens is back to it's beautiful self! Apparently a few things needed to be tightened and a few pieces of glasses needed to be realigned! Yay ... I am so happy! Immediately I went out and snapped a few photos of the last of the maroon roses that are blooming ... with a shallow depth of field and zoomed in pretty close!
While the quality of the photos doesn't really show here in this blog post, you'll have to just trust me on this one ... these photos are crisp and clear and I couldn't be happier!
I'm so excited to get out there and shoot again ... I LOVE THIS LENS AGAIN!
Be warned ... the lens is a little pricey, like $999.00 but I promise you will not be buying another lens for a long time! This will be your go to lens for Portraits, Landscapes, Kids, Pups, Crafts, Food and on and on!
