My Main Camera Lenses

My 4 Main "Primes"....

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens


This is my wide angle prime lens that I sometimes use for landscapes, home interior, and astrophotography. It's razor sharp and it's also really fun to just get creative with due to its super-wide angle effects and blurry background shooting it at f/1.4. It also make a rather unique portrait lens.

Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens


This is my #1 and most used prime lens. It's a great walk around and every day general purpose lens that's amazingly sharp and has awesome image quality.  Besides being a great portrait, stills, and landscape lens, it also focuses extremely close and is almost like a macro lens! This lens is the most useful and versatile prime lens in my kit! 

Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens


This is a great portrait and still's lens that nicely separates your subject from the background, and it's also great for certain types of landscape shots. I often use this lens for portrait photos and for many of my flower/plant life types of images and other stills. I also like to use it for certain telephoto landscape images.

The lens is very sharp with great optics and built tough!

This lens is mostly used on my Canon 5D Mark IV.



Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens

This lens is one of my favorites!. It's takes extremely crisp and clear images and most of the close up macro shots that I take are done with this lens. It does have its limitations when it comes to everyday general photography, but, I must say, I often have the most fun with this lens!





My 5 Main Wide Angle & Mid-Range "Zooms"....

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens


This is one of the best wide angle lenses that Canon makes in my opinion and is extremely sharp!. I use this lens most often for home interior photos of my cabinetry work and as my main wide angle lens for landscape photography.

At 35mm it's also an awesome walk around lens for casual shooting.





Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens


This is mainly my general purpose "walk about" lens and is often on my 5D Mark IV.  I often use this lens for landscape photography as it's an extremely sharp lens corner to corner throughout the zoom range. It also has great image stabilization which eliminates the need for a tripod in many situations. It also has a Macro feature which makes it even a more versatile lens.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens

This lens is mostly used as my main telephoto landscape lens, but it's such a great lens I also occasionally use it for many other types of photography. It's quite a bit smaller and lighter than my Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens so it's mainly the 70-200 that I carry the most in my everyday carry kit. It's an awesome and extremely sharp lens wide open all through its focal range.

Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens


This is my main general purpose lens that has become one of my favorites and most used zoom lenses. It's extremely versatile and is often used on my 5D Mark IV. It's extremely sharp and is often used for my landscape work and nature images.  

Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Lens 


This is a great mid range telephoto zoom lens and is razor sharp and built like a tank. This lens is mostly used on my Canon 5D Mark IV. I use it mostly for wildlife, landscape, and portrait photography. A great versatile lens!



My 2 "Super Zoom/Telephoto" Lenses....

Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM II Lens 


This is a phenomenal lens and is extremely sharp with great contrast and colors. It's an awesome versatile lens and the best zoom I've ever owned. Canon hit a home run with this lens!

This lens basically lives on my Canon 90D. I also occasionally use it with the Canon 1.4 Mark iii Extender.

This lens is absolutely amazing on both APS-C and Full Frame Camera's! 

Sigma 150-600mm 5-6.3 Contemporary DG OS HSM Lens

I call this lens, "The Beast". It's quite the zoom/telephoto lens and great for events, wildlife, and sports shooting. It's really sharp and takes great images, and it's a blast to use.
