Up until now Ive been using the cheap kit lens from my old Canon XTi on my 50D, which hasn't been doing it justice. Granted, I can get some ok results from the little EFS 18-55mm, but the lenses are junk and (to me) it shows in the final product.



Today I said what the hell, and strapped on the 16-35 f2.8 L-series lens on the 50D and took a few test shots. Its a $1500 piece of glass and I was pretty nervous at first, but once I locked in the AceOne and let her hover, I felt much better. The results are pretty decent... alot better than the 18-55.

Pics shot as the sun set at around 6pm today.

Heres what happens when it snows in Atlanta. We aren't setup to deal with snow, so only the major highways get salted. The result is a bunch of cars trying to climb a slight grade... some more successful than others. This was just in front of my house. Im sure there will be hundreds of fender benders by tomorrow.
