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

I agree with the comments that a skilled photographer can produce 'Wow' images with just about any lens.

That said, my personal preference gravitates toward fast primes with shallow DOF and beautiful bokeh. Of the lenses I own, the 50L and 135L do it for me. The 70-200F2.8ISvII is pretty darn sweet also. In contrast, my very fine Zeiss 28F2 just does not 'do it' for me personally. Aparently, I am not the kinda of person that will go ga ga over technical perfection and corner sharpness - but I do go ga ga over bokeh and shallow DOF. I appreciate that my taste are not for everyone, but hey its my hobby so I might as well shoot what is asthetically pleasing to me right
