I have found the lens that suites me best in shooting in low light conditions such as indoors, forest, and night shooting.
It’s a Canon 17-55mm F/2.8 EF-S IS USM. The lens have a low fixed aperture throughout its focal length and it is equiped with an image stabilizer. I have read reviews stating that the image quality of the lens is good. But sadly, it cost as much as a bom, a RM 4000 lens..
After finding out about the price, I searched for other fixed aperture lens with focal length at around 18-55mm. I found one, which is a Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 with image stabilizer. It is way cheaper, lower than RM 2000.
It is known that Tamron lens have a problem with focusing. It is slow and sometimes in-accurate.
So, which one,the more expensive Canon or the cheaper Tamron?
Today’s photo was taken along the way to Lepok Waterfall. There was an abandoned hut made out of bamboo woods, surely belonged to those Orang Asli around that area.
I took a Raw image and processed it into HDR before tweaking the picture, a little.
