Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM

Review Date: Jun 20, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,230.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: I have been reading reviews of this lens for almost two years now and finally decided to invest the money for my own lens. I have been shooting with it for a couple of weeks now and we are still getting used to one another :) Wide Open the DOF is very shallow and if you do not put your subject at the correct distance, it is easy to get a blurred subject. This just takes practice and when done correct, the subject will be very sharp with a very nice blurred background. The images have sort of a 3D look to them as if the subject could step right out of the photo. None of my other L-Series lens have this attribute. The lens is extremely sharp wide open and stepped all the way down. The lens produces a very nice bokeh when wide open which is pleasing to the eye. I just love shooting with this lens, and hate when I have to take it off the camera. I have read some reviews complaining of poor build quality, but my copy is solid. Their are no squeaks, rattles or anything that feels flimsy. Other than not being weather sealed, this lens is just about perfect.
I have nothing bad to say about this lens.

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Aug 4, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,300.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: This lens is Tack Sharp wide open and just gets better from there. I just cannot say enough positive things about this lens. If you can afford it, "Run...don't walk" and get one. You will not be disappointed.
Absolutely Nothing!

Canon EOS D60

Review Date: Apr 29, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,000.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: This was my first DSLR and still my favorite due to the outstanding color it captures. I have since purchased a 1DS Mark 2 and Digital Rebel XTi, but would not dream of getting rid of my D60. Even after all these years, its still a great camera.
