As many of you know, I dabble in photography a bit. For years now I have used the kit lens that came with my Rebel XT. I have heard again and again that it is the photographer not the equipment that matters and I have stood by that and never upgraded to a new lens. Well, I finally got a new lens this Friday and am just totally blown out of the saddle by the difference in quality! Here is a 100% crop that has been totally unaltered... no sharpening, no saturation change, nothing... My old lens, the one that has taken ALL the costume pics on my site, is on the left... The new lens is on the right. You can see full pics here:
I can't believe the difference in clarity and saturation. Can't wait to see what comes from our upcoming Boston shoot!
