Re: Prime lenses vs telephoto

I have been contracted to photograph completed kitchens by a local cabinet shop. I use a Canon 17-40L lens on my 5DmkII. You can check out some examples on my site here: & here at there site:

The key is a sturdy professional tripod & proper f-stop. I have examined the images at 100% and they are very sharp. I am sure the primes would give a bit better image but this setup provides more than what is needed in this case. The zoom is extremely helpful in kitchens as sometimes you literally have your back against a wall and need the versatility without a lens change or reposition. Hope this helps.

Canon 5D2, 30D, 50 1.8, 17-40L, 70-200 2.8 Sigma, 100 Macro Canon, 100-400L, 550EX, MacBook Pro 2.4GHz, Aperture, PSCS4
