What Canon Lens for General Aquarium Shots?

Recommended Posts

MedRed

I just picked up a Canon EOS 7D. What is a good lens for taking full tank shots as well as non macro shots within the tank. Would a EF 50mm f/1.8 II fulfill my needs?

 

I currently own:

EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM (Kit Lens)

EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

That's what I use. And I find it's working for me pretty well.

the 50 would probably work well, but honestly, the kit lens is more than adequate.

Thanks. I was thinking the 50mm would help with lower light situations.

I have the 50mm prime, and while its an awesome lens I don't like it all that much for FTS. I agree with some of the other posters that the kit is probably better suited.

 

Get the 50mm anyway because it is cheap and takes great other pictures.
