I promise I’ll change subjects this weekend, but for now I’m still with the computer theme. Here’s another little device without which the majority of my high tech gadgetry would be useless.
If nothing else, the shots from the last few days have taught me that I really, really want to try a dedicated macro lens. These computer theme shots have all been taken with a 50mm f/1.8, which is a great little lens, or with my 70-300mm when I really wanted to get in close. Unfortunately the 70-300mm has a ridiculously large minimum focus distance, which has resulted in me getting into some rather comical positions in order to get far enough from things like the punchdown block to get a shot.
I’ve had a wide angle lens at the top of my wish list for awhile now, but I may have to let Santa know that the macro lens has bumped it down a notch!
