@anthonygh, Any idea where I can get some new strings for my air guitar?

p.2 #2 · Love / Hate


I love/hate my Canon 50mm f/1.4. It was the first lens for my long-time-gone Canon D30. It worked quite well on that 3MP crop body. I've owned it for over 10 years and when stepping down 2 or 3 stops, it's still an excellent lens.

135L was a double edged sword for me. Loved the extra stop of light at f2 but hated the thin DOF. Had to shoot it along with the 85/1.8 when I had just my 1D2 as it's high ISO in low light gyms was not very good and I needed the shutter speed. 1D4 solved that and I was able to move on to a 70-200 2.8 which was so much more versatile.

I agree with stanj, definitely the 50L for me. I have bought, sold, re-purchased, traded and now it is in the mail and on its way back into my bag again. Exemplifies a love/hate definition in my mind, and I've decided I can't live without it.

Right now my Canon 70-200 f/4. It is a little more hate. I love it because I mostly do sports, so it is a great lens for that. But I hate it because it is soft as anything and f/4 sometimes doesn't cut it. Looking to upgrade. Maybe it will be a little more love than hate with a f/2.8 version.

That's normally a very dry sharp zoom wide open. Sounding like it needs MA or service. I had a decentered one (blurry left side) and Canon Service made it tack sharp.

Not really hate, but always in doubt with my 85/1.8. Often the frame is either too short or too close with it depending on the situation - I always go back either using my 50/1.2 or the 135/2. But when I use it, it is a great lens.

50L. Fiercely. I keep comparing it to my high school girlfriend.


Agreed, I love her bokeh. I hate that she has mercurial sharpness, especially 1.2-1.4. Why can't she be as consistent at all apertures as my lovely 85L?

What lens do you now or in the past have a Love / Hate relationship with?


Tom, after almost 2 years of relatively frequent 800L use, I continue to have divided feelings about the lens, and I am on my 2nd copy.

I actually put a combined 40K clicks on my cameras, all of which occur in the real world. My second job of shooting weddings pays my daughter's tuition; my wife of 25 years doesn't like giving up saturday nights but understands. Having actually taken part in raising my kids and making time for the wife, I am pretty sure I "have a life".

For a guy that preaches "going into the real world", you seem to be active here. Cut the psuedo-cool BS and look at the mirror.

You do realize this is a gear forum, right?

Love/hate may be a bit strong for me but my 24-105 was the closest thing to that kind of relationship. I'm currently on my second copy. With my recent purchase of the 24-70 f/2.8 II I had considered for a second time to part ways once again but this time I'm giving more thought and time in making a decision. To not make any decision is my decision..
