Relaxing Movement

This is great. I would have thought one would need a fast lens but I guess not. Was this one continuous shoot or did you take multiple short exposures?

If I may ask of course.

How do you guys find this lens in low light situations?

such as shooting in the evening outside when the sun is going down and stuff like that.

I have a Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 HSM.
Prior to this had the Canon 17-85mm F4-5.6

I find the Sigmia soft and doesn't producde that great sharp images like my Canon did... so I am looking to move on. Only thing stopping me is the f3.5 vs F2.8 at the wider range. Although I think image quality will make up for it? :)

I can't help as I never use this lens in low light situation (not good enough for these situations). I prefer use my prime.

Cheers. :D
Yeah it seems to go alright at night with the long exposures. Its 30, 2 minute exposures stacked on the sky, and one 2 minute exposure on the tents.

Would of used my 35L but it wasn't wide enough on the crop sensor.

The IS is great on this lens so you should be able to make up for the loss of aperture by using a slower shutter speed (so long as you don't need the higher shutter speed to prevent motion blur). It's only about a 2/3 stop difference between f/3.5 and f/2.8, so you're not giving that much up.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

the only low light I do are either sunrise/set, or ones where the shutter is slow on purpose for night scenes, so it does not matter to me if its f2.8 or f3.5.

This lens' 15mm is lovely for wide star fields or landscapes. Got my first lightning shot last night at 2am, and then a typical sunset tonight

P.S. that's not a dirty sensor, its rain drops on the window I was peering through
