Seems time for a thread for the EFS 18-55 STM which I believe is a very good inexpensive lens. For these pictures I chose this lens to take family day pictures. My daughter, her family and I got together for a running event in South Hero Vermont.
I ran the Green Mountain Half Marathon and my daughter the Green Mountain Marathon. Since I only had to run half as far, I had time to photograph part of daughter's race.
Here she is approaching the finish.
About to cross the finish line in 3:10 minutes.
Here she is receiving her award as the first woman marathon finisher.
It was a good day for both of us as I was the first 70 plus runner in the half finishing in 1 hr 50 minutes. For the last shot I used the 70d built in flash as I didn't bring my EX 430.
