Canon Explorers of Light
“As a travel photographer, I need the versatility of a zoom lens–without losing sharpness! That’s why I use Canon L-series zoom lenses for all my travel work. For people photography, I use and recommend the EF 24-105mm ƒ/4L IS USM zoom, because it’s ideal for portraits and especially environmental portraits, that is, pictures of subjects in their environments. For wildlife, I use and recommend the EF 100-400mm ƒ/4.5-5.6L IS USM zoom and a 1.4x teleconverter. Keep this photo adage in mind: Most people don’t move in or zoom in close enough when they shoot! Also keep in mind that most lenses are sharpest around ƒ/8.”
