This is why I'm in love with the L series lenses for Canon...

You know if you've read my blogs at all before that I am passionate about my love for my children and family...that I am loyal to my friends...that I stand by my beliefs.  You also know that I love photography, and feel that passion (along with a good eye) go a long way in making a great photographer.  There have been times that I've had another photographer ask why I would want to pay the higher price for an L-lens for my Canon camera (my newest lens is the 50mm f/1.2 - which is probably my favorite overall)... well, today is my "off" day with lots of different repairmen coming by to take care of things.  Seems last week was my "break down" week, with things falling apart in my house.  Anyway... While waiting in between some of the appointments scheduled so that hopefully everything can get back to normal, I wanted to check on how my daylilies were coming along with blooming... so of course the first thing I grab is my camera.  And normally I would have gone on our with my 50mm, or possibly put my 24-70 on for this purpose -- but today I decided to use my less-often-used 100mm f/2.8 L because it is a macro lens.  (all of these lenses are L-series, but the 100mm is also a specific macro lens) And wow - I loved what I could see immediately when I uploaded the photos I took.  The L-lens just seems to capture the most vibrant colors.  I always shoot in RAW format - it allows me the most control with editing.  But even in that format, the images straight out of the camera are gorgeous.  I'm going to share a few - and you make your own opinion.  And share with me what you think -- or your own experiences.  And remember, these images are all SOOC (straight out of camera)
