Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how to).
This week’s Fan Of… is Lenny my new macro lens. I got this boy a couple of weeks ago & have spent my time learning all about him. Lenny is a Canon EFS 35mm f/2.8 Macro lens (affiliate link).
As most of you reading this will know, macro photography is best achieved using a tripod so you are able to capture the smallest detail clearly. Lenny has a really good image stabiliser system; it uses Hybrid IS Technology which measures both angular & linear movement. This info is sent to the onboard processor which then compensates to minimise shake. This allows for a lot more free hand macro photography, getting good crisp results.
Another feature I hadn’t seen before is the built in lens light for low light shooting.
This light is can be on both sides at once, or is selectable left or right, & has 2 brightness levels.
He also has a lens cover that specifically covers the light if you aren’t using it & protects it from any knocks.
So far I have nothing but praise for Lenny. He is allowing me to get much clearer, crisper images free hand, and in lower lighting situations which would previously have required additional lighting & a tripod.
Here are a selection of images from my recent playtime, enjoy 😃

What an impressive gallery, Sweetie! Definitely worth the investment 🤩
Fabulous shots, Jez. I love the light feature! I’ve never seen that before. It looks like you’re having a lot of fun with this!
It’s certainly a great addition to my arsenal 😃
These are beautiful. I should take out my camera one of these days.
Photography is also contagious 😁😁😁
Have a wonderful and safe weekend.
You too, Rupali 😃

Glad you’re enjoying the new toy, Jez. Definitely good results, and I like the idea of the light. Lockdown has been a great time for trying things new, and I’ve been doing more macro. I was thinking of getting a similar light.
I’m being nosy this week: https://travelwithintent.com/2020/06/08/im-a-fan-of-being-nosy/
Thanks, Debbie 😊 Having the built in light is a massive bonus, particularly as you can get the shadows just as you want them. The only down side is that it is a very white light & can wash bright colours out a bit 🤔
