Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM Lens Review by The Digital Picture

leave a comment »

Because it is a very high quality but moderately-priced ultra wide angle zoom lens, the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM Lens is one of Canon’s best selling lenses. The 17-40 f/4 L fills out the bottom focal length range of Canon’s f/4 L zoom lens series. It is the lightest L lens currently made (1.1 lbs / 475g) and is the smallest L zoom lens currently produced (3.3″ x 3.8″ / 83.5mm x 96.8mm – DxL).

As indicated by the “ultra wide angle” designation, the 17-40mm focal length is ultra wide on a full-frame DSLR. Let’s take a look at a focal length comparison.I know, the 30mm focal length is a somewhat unusual choice for this comparison, but … I didn’t plan to use this set of images this way – I was just shooting the scene. Obviously, 17mm is vastly wider than 40mm.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens Review by The Digital Picture

With framing equivalent to a 16-35mm zoom on a full frame body, the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens provides EF-S compatible camera body owners with the ultra-wide angle focal lengths so often missed on this small-sensor format camera.

EF-S is Canon’s moniker for Short Back Focus. The distance between the film (sensor) plane and the rear of the lens is shorter than it is in an EF lens. Many have questioned the longevity of this standard, but, my expectation is that it will be around for a long time – easily long enough for most people to get their desired value from a lens.

From Back Home is a collaboration between two of Sweden’s leading photographers, Anders Petersen (b. 1944) and JH Engström (b. 1969), focusing on the Värmland region, one of the most sparsely populated provinces in Sweden. The two photographers have a shared relationship with the land—they both come from this region—as well as a strong personal relationship. Engström worked as Petersen’s assistant and the older man is a major influence for him. Read the rest of this entry »
