This weekend the Girl and I went down to Brighton, I’ve not been since I did the London to Brighton bike ride a few years ago. The weather was kinda crappy but it was cool to have a mooch around somewhere different. I also rented a Canon 17-40mm f/4 L USM from LensLocker to take for a walk around. Now not all of the photos you will see are taken with the wide zoom but my 50mm f/1.4 USM (I never leave home without it). I still don’t know how well I get a long with zoom lenses, they are cool and they are useful but I often end up just twisting it to the one extreme or the other and leaving it there…kind of makes me just want to use a wide angle prime instead. The 17-40L is pretty cool, it behaves well, no flare and no CA…I don’t know if I love it. It’s one of those lenses that I need rather than want. What wide angle lenses do you use?
You are never really more than a few feet away from some impressive architecture.
Would I go back? You bet!
