Which lenses do I use?

I have been asked a lot about which lens one or another picture was taken with. That’s why I’m writing about the lenses I use on a daily basis in this post. I bought all the lenses myself, so this is not a sponsored post.

In general, I have 2 lenses with me, the third one is added if I plan to take macro photos. So I have 3 lenses in use.

I don’t really want to change lenses when working outdoors, so I also have 3 cameras. Of course, it would be less heavy if I carried only one camera and then changed the lenses as needed. However, this would inevitably mean that there would be particles on the sensor that do not belong there. I have never been able to completely clean the sensor myself, and this has also not been the case with companies that specialize in sensor cleaning. There is always some dust particle that has not come off during the cleaning. In addition, I think it’s much more convenient to just pull out the right camera with a suitable lens from a photo bag, and then take pictures. No need to change lenses.

Now about the lenses in more detail.

Normal zoom lens – Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM

This is a normal zoom lens with an f/2.8 aperture. The lens is equipped with a stabilizer. The lens is quite compact, but requires quite large diameter filters (77 mm).

Macro lens – Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro

It is also a lens with an f/2.8 aperture. This lens also has a stabilizer.

Telephoto lens – Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM

This is a Canon L-series lens. The lens has a f/4 aperture. This lens also has an image stabilizer. The image quality of this lens is quite superb. Whenever possible I take pictures with it.
