I Bought a New Lens!

I bought my current camera around Christmas time last year, the Canon 600D, and I love it. However, since I bought it I haven't strayed from the kit lens (the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DC III Lens). All the pictures, unless stated otherwise are taken with this lens. Don't get me wrong, I love my camera, and have had no problems with the lens, I just wanted a bigger zoom. Not because I'm a stalker, or a Private Investigator, and not because I'm too lazy to move closer to my subject. I wanted a bigger zoom lens because the things I want to photograph always seem to be far away, whether it's animals, trees, people or whatever, I always want more zoom. So I invested in the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III Lens, because I saw it on Amazon for £60!

The photos below show how different the two lenses are; I am sitting in the same place for all four. The first one is taken at the widest angle on my 18 - 55mm lens, and the second is taken at its most zoomed in. The third is the widest on my 75 - 300mm lens, and the fourth is the most zoomed in. i.e. the first photo is at 18mm, the second 55mm, the third 75mm and the fourth 300mm. There are no effects on these pictures (hence why they're so grey). 


If all that confused you, here's all that information squeezed onto one picture. I've not had this new lens for long at all, but will keep you updated with how I'm getting on with it. So far I love it, it's just a little heavy.
