There are a lot of expensive lenses out there. From the prime Ef 85mm F1.2 IS II USM that costs around $2,300 to the heavy EF 800mm F5.6 that cost around $14,000 dollars. It’s a no-brainer why photography can be an expensive hobby or a profession that usually starts many pros with a low profit margin! However, pro or amateur, one of the lenses that I highly recommend is the EF Canon 50mm F1.8 Mark 2. This IQ (image quality) of this lens is just amazingly clean and sharp producing amazingly great images for less than a hundred bucks!
Remembering the days when my father and I used to post process photographs in our little dark room at home reminds me how much the world has gotten technologically advanced today. I remember test mixing chemicals all the way to shading dark areas on negatives using a pencil just to brighten out an image when shot through an enlarger. Now… all of this can be easily done and manipulated to your own tastes using a computer and a software called Photoshop… which to my opinion is the world’s most used photo imaging software.
