I picked up a new lens recently that I had been thinking about getting for quite sometime. I was torn between the Canon 28mm f/1.8 & the Sigma version. I decided to go with the Canon version because of the size and weight (smaller & lighter). The lens performs decent wide open as you can see from the shot of my son bellow, however if you are pixel peeping on some printed letters at 1.8 you might not be all that impressed. With that said, real world use in regular type pictures are all good wide open.

On a side note, the lens came with the filter on it and I am kind of moving away from them at the moment. I was going to just take it off, but thought I might leave it on for a bit and see how I feel. The extra protection is nice, but I think it looks kind of ridiculous with the filter on it haha. I will do a full post on this subject in the future.

  1. Congrats on your new baby…and your son, as I am SURE you know, is adorable! We have a 17 year old and I see these pics and can’t believe how recent it feels he was that age. Sigh.

    1. Yes Heather new lenses are fun for sure. As for filters, don’t bother. I have never actually bought one my self, but if I got like a 2nd hand lens and it had one then I kept it. That’s how I got in that habit my self, but like I said I am moving away from that.

  2. I too have struggled over the filter issue. In the end I decided not to ever use protective filters. I’ve never had a problem scratching a lens. I do use the lens hoods. What a cool looking bridge.
