Hi you all,

I have read a post on someone looking for a lens that produces a "wow" factor.....

So let's have it, what do you consider a lens with a definite "wow" effect

Please specify the lens, the body it's used on, and of course your use...

Include examples if you had some handy

I'll start, in my bag, the WOW effect, is had by :

the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II for sports

the EF 135mm f/2 L for portraits

the EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS for sports and wildlife

I use mainly now 1DX or 5D III

Cheers and looking forward to reading your posts !!!

Phil

Boy I wish I had your trick bag of lenses ! Of all your lenses the most magical would be the 300L. I recall seeing a full body portrait with that lens and it was awesome. It made the lady/subject appear as if she were enveloped with a circle of color. I envy you !

As for me my magic lens is the often trashed 50L. The light has to be  right for it to do it's magic but oh I love that lens!
