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 😃
