I invested on pro graded lenses recently. I sold all my 3rd party lenses. Don’t get me wrong, but my previous 3rd party lenses performed well and served me well, published some great photos with it. But of course there are some shortcomings in every product and It was frustrating at times. Now with my new 21MP 5D Mark II some of my consumer lenses showed some poor perfromance. Hopefully as budget and business will let me, next yearΒ  I can add these lenses to my arsenal EF 135 f2.0 L, EF 15mm f2.8 fisheye, TS-E 24mm, EF 50mm f1.2 L and EF 85mm f1.2 L, oh well i will be a happy kid again πŸ˜€ Thats what you called day dreaming πŸ˜‰ Seriously, I dont want to shortcharge my clients and il give them the best output that skills and equipment can provide.
