I know it's not a real common lens around here but most of the time I use my 400/2.8.

and something a little different, a 17-40 on a MKIII.

My favorite for outdoor pet photography is by far, the 135L... if I could only have 1 lens, that would be it. Seems to be just about the perfect focal length for me and gives beautiful background separation plus lightning fast autofocus.

Both are lovely. I like the most first picture. Can you disclose that Which camera have you used for these photos? I am really curious to know about it.

Are you asking me? I wasn't sure if you were replying to me or someone else. If so, I use a 7D.

The only lenses I have ever used for animals is either my 80-200 2.8 or 70-200-2.8. Not saying you can't take pet pics with any lens you happen to have, that's just what I use.

I find the 50mm 1.8 is a great all around lens

would there be any benefit in using a polarizer filter for eye glare? would that work?
example:

Sigma 85 1.4 and the canon 70-200 f2.8 work great for me when it comes to animals. Both focus fast enough if they're moving around.


7D II - Canon 24-70 II F2.8 - Sigma 85 1.4 - Sigma 30mm 1.4 - Canon 18-135 STM
