365/77 Perspective/5

Wide angle! I got my 14-54mm II f/2.8-3.5 today, and this lens is a true gem! For $500-ish, you get an unbeatable optic, especially for the price! So far I noticed just a touch distortion at the wide end (14mm, or 28mm full-frame equivalent), and by a touch, I mean it's only noticeable if you know where to look, and it's really minimal. In everyday photography, I doubt it's visible, and if it is, it's very easy to correct.

Oh yeah, did I mention it's weather sealed? And it's said that the 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 SWD is really fast with AF, but the difference between this lens and my kit lens or my 50mm is so big, that it'll be a while before I get frustrated with the AF speed of this lens.

Ok, back to 365. Just a snap of my little one, to test the 14mm angle on.

Lens and camera settings:
14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 @ 14mm, f/2.8, 1/100sec and ISO 800.

  1. So many lenses, so little time...I love the angle on this one!

  2. I think she's getting used to the camera, because she knew exactly what to do when I got overhead to get an angle :-P

  3. I love this picture, she looks like a bobble head doll. Great shot!
