| p.2 #3 · 24-105 vs 28-135 as walkaround lens for 6D |
Chris -- I'm finding LR4 to really change the complexion of this 28-135. The lens Profile does great at reducing the distortion, and the Color setting eliminates CA. The version I have now must be more recent, with better lens coatings, because it has far better contrast than I remember. Plus better central sharpness. And the lens is moderately flare-resistant (see second photo, light between leaves).
I'm very surprised to find myself liking this lens! It is lightweight and feels well balanced on the 5D2 with grip.
It has no lens creep, unless pointed straight down. 135mm is a pretty impressive close-up lens.
I'm not saying it is L quality, but for a all-purpose knock-around on full frame, it's doing good so far.
Here's a shot from yesterday that I cross-posted in the "Canon Winter" thread (sorry). It is a three shot panorama (heavy overlap) with a 5D2 at 28mm, 1/125, f/7.1, ISO 200, processed in LR4 and PSE 10.
Here's another from yesterday, just before the sun went down. Same camera, 135mm, 1/60, f/7.1, ISO 400, LR4, slight crop. IS is a really bonus for this type of shot!
