Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8

Review Date: Apr 27, 2017 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Unbelievable looking shots for portrait photographers surprisingly. Love the blur effect.
Overtime the knobs can get loose if your not careful with it and sand/dust could get inside.

This is one of my favorite lenses. I currently don't have it in my possession because it broke! Sad The sliders got all loose on my and I think it was exposed to water somehow. It just stopped working after a while. Mind you it had its fair share of use out of it. I bought it used from another portrait photographer. However it was the one lens in my kit that just didn't last quite as long as the others.

You can see some shot examples we did of a wedding in key west here - It's such an awesome lens I definitely recommend it to anyone getting it. One of my top 3 fav for sure.

I will say I was pretty rough with it so it may be my fault. Im actually renting it again for a wedding this weekend from Borrow Lenses. It's been such a long time since I rented a lens. Man it hurts the wallet when you have to do that. Don't know how I ever got into photography still.

Pros: Really wide lens could make for some interesting shots
Aperture starting at f/4 isn't great the lowest I prefer is f/2.8

I really don't love this lens imo. If you're just getting started maybe its good but I think its not an investment lens for the long term.

Check out this review here on it -

They do a good job summarizing their opinions on it.

The widest I'd go is with the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 you can take a look at some samples shots here under the wedding section -

Either way by getting it I'm sure you'll learn what it works well with and what it doesn't every lens has its strengths and weaknesses.
