Niagara – Pictures

Trying out long exposure for the first time at Niagara Falls. I think they turned out quite well.

New lens – 17-70

So this is the Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM C lens. What a long name. This is the “new” version – it has the C on the side.

I decided to buy this because I wanted a kit lens upgrade, and this has a larger aperture and macro mode, two things which I really like! The kit lens is always giving me “the subject is too dark” complaints.

This lens gets really amazing shots, colour is amazing, bokeh is amazing, macro is… magical. I can literally have the subject touching the lens and it will still focus. But… just one complaint from me – its way too heavy! The kit lens is 195g, and this is 535g. Almost 3 times the weight! And I think that’s what makes it unusable for me.. I will never look forward to bringing this lens around.

Pictures – Calgary Trip

I went on a extended weekend trip to Calgary to visit my friends and had a really great time! We saw some pretty sights, ate some amazing food, and experienced fun activities.
