Photography, Travel, and my Canon Lens Recommendations

Canon EOS 40D

One of my greatest joys in life is photography. I bought an SLR camera when my son was born in 2005. That first camera was a used Canon Rebel XT, which I purchased on Ebay, and I began taking baby photographs as well as travel photographs. I then bought a Canon 30D on Ebay, which I have been shooting with since.

The real secret, to camera hardware is that it’s all about the lenses, not the camera body. Of course, all everyone wants to know is “what kind of camera do you have?” but, although the cameras may change constantly, the lenses can be in use for years and deliver high quality shots. (This took a while to learn).

I know I will be upgrading my Canon 30D very soon. Another photographer told me that the Canon 40D is actually better than the Canon 50D and better than the (original) Canon 5D, (now replaced by the Canon 5D Mark II.

I’ve purchased lenses from Costco, Amazon, Adorama, J&R Camera, and B&H Camera. The following are my favorites:
