Here’s another image I took a few weeks ago while hiking in the Texas Hill Country.

Take a good look at this image. It was taken hand-held with my “consumer grade” EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens, not with one of my heavier and more expensive “L Series” lenses and yet, the sharpness, contrast and bokeh are outstanding. Don’t let anyone fool you. Canon’s consumer grade lenses are fully capable of producing great images.

One thought on “Texture

  1. I agree, Jeff. The 17-85mm is my everyday walk-around lens and I’m happy with it as well…until I can afford an L-Series 😉
