My Main Camera Lenses

My 2 Main Primes....

Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens


This is my #1 and most used lens out of all my lenses and is almost always on my Canon 6D2. It's a great walk around and every day purpose lens that's amazingly sharp and has awesome image quality.  Besides being a great portrait, stills, and landscape lens, it also focuses extremely close and is almost like a macro lens! This lens is the most useful and versatile lens in my kit! 

Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens


This is a great portrait and still's lens that nicely separates your subject from the background, and it's also great for certain types of landscape shots. I often use this lens for portrait photos and for many of my flower/plant life types of images and other stills. I also like to use it for certain telephoto landscape images.

The lens is very sharp with great optics and built tough!




My 2 Main Zooms....

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens


This is one of the best wide angle lens Canon makes in my opinion and is extremely sharp!. I use this lens most often for home interior photos of my cabinetry work and as my main wide angle lens for landscape photography.

At 35mm it's also an awesome walk around lens for casual shooting.





Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens 


This is a phenomenal lens and is extremely sharp with great contrast and colors. It's an awesome versatile lens and the best zoom I've ever owned. Canon hit a home run with this lens!

This lens basically lives on my Canon 80D due to the 1.6 crop of it's sensor for an added focal reach of 112-480mm.


This lens is absolutely amazing on both APS-C and Full Frame Camera's! 


The 4 Lenses above I carry with me almost all of the time....




My MACRO Lens....

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens

This lens is one of my favorites!. It's takes extremely crisp and clear images and most of the close up macro shots that I take are done with this lens. It does have its limitations when it comes to everyday general photography, but, I must say, I often have the most fun with this lens!




My Super Zoom/Telephoto Lens....

Sigma 150-600mm 5-6.3 Contemporary DG OS HSM Lens

I call this lens, "The Beast". It's quite the zoom/telephoto lens and great for events, wildlife, and sports shooting. It's really sharp and takes great images, and it's a blast to use. 


My Other Lenses....(mostly used for video)

Canon Ultra Wide EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens

This lens is basically my main video lens for my 80D and T6i and does almost all my videos when I at home making YouTube Video's and most other video's made away from my house. The silent focusing motor in this lens is absolutely amazing. It also takes amazingly sharp and colorful images, it's a great wide angle multi-purpose lens.
It's also an amazing landscape and home interior type of lens too!

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens


This is also known as the "nifty fifty" lens or the "plastic fantastic"! This lens is super sharp and is a great portrait and excellent video lens when I don't need the super wide angle. This lens is also great for using in low light. It's just an all around cool lens!

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens


This is the kit lens that came with the REBEL T6i Camera. This is a really nice lens and takes quite crisp and clear images and a really good video making lens. I very seldom ever use this lens any more, but when I do it is usually only for just shooting video.

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Lens

This is an awesome telephoto zoom lens! It has great color/contrast, is very sharp, and has super fast and accurate focusing. It's a great lens for events, wildlife, and landscape photography.
