Undoubtedly, if you are about to shoot wedding, probably already asked yourself, what exactly lenses will be needed to manage the level. In the next posts I will try to get some personal experience and opinion on the most appropriate panes each wedding photographer is good to know. Natural to consider all options, which the market has not exactly been the most necessary. So will only focus on so-called “must have” lenses. Wedding day’s reporting is an event which often requires a change of focal length, fast response to situations fast focusing, etc. With time and experience we acquire shooting. Wedding learn to recognize when it will happen or that thing, but the moment of surprise always remains. The bride and groom , and situations around them in time routine, in sledvashtiya- unique. Therefore it is better wedding photographer have a quality, fast and accurate zoom lens that meets precise determination of each situation. And since shooting a NIKON, I will speak to lenses Nikon; 24-70 for full frame, and 17-55 for DX matrix. Other brands have the same focal lengths of lenses you. There are a lot written on the subject of image quality, examples, etc., but here I want to focus on something else and it’s applicability and the differences between one and another lens. Each wedding photographer will inevitably reach to these lenses because they are actually the top of the wide zoom in both technology devices, unattended Full Frame and Crop. Generally 24-70 and 17-55 are two identical in structure lenses. The design, size, sun visors – clean them visually very similar to each other, and the same price. The difference is in the Bulgarian market is max 100 – 150 BGN. Which at 2600 or 2500 lev glass is honestly significant difference. Is negligible and the difference in image quality, which offer two panes. While 17-55 is not applicable to FX, as vinetinga began to disappear only at 27-28 mm, leaving enough to see 35 if you ask me, if you decide to test the quality of the lens (17-55) on a full frame larger millimeters, and do the same with 24-70 equated to Crop factor DX (just divide 1.5) – will not see any difference. Lenses are exactly the same as the structure and optical properties. Often makes the mistake, however, is like 24-70 for a sharper, a very simple reason. Nobody tested 17-55 of Full Frame, because it can not be used there. The only difference in the sharpness of both lenses is seen testing the 24-70 on FX, and 17-55 of the Crop. By testing them on the same body should really optical virtuoso to notice the difference. I’ve used both bodies in the same body. This is only possible by the DX camera, respectively, considering its focal distance Crop factors. Since the pixels of FX e larger, the same ISO sometimes it looks slightly sharper, which adds more definition to the image, making it more “sharp”. Both lenses I’ve tested a D7100, the newest and highest grade Crop body. For me the main difference I noticed in both the lens is in terms of focal length. If you wedding photographer , and use FX body, have no choice but to use 24-70 for a basic lens. If you are using crop-that was probably the best of technology, which for example is Nikon D7000 or D7100. The good news is that the last two sets can be used and 2nd lens. Crop apparatus have no problem with a full-vinetinga freymskite lenses. However have a problem with focal distances. 24-70 on the DX format is 36-105mm, which is quite strange focal length, tending more towards telephoto, than wide zoom. Shooting in confined spaces, apartments, ceremonial halls, hotel rooms DX shooters will have to stick close to the walls so as not to slash something important, insofar as they, while FF unit 24-70 is the most versatile lens I know. 17-55 the 35mm equivalent matrix is (25,5-82,5mm). This makes it even more flexible than 24-70 as focal length DX, because you can zoom a bit better, making it approached photo. Shot on Crop however, will need to lift ISO-with the price of a little more noise, but that’s another conversation. From now on it is your personal choice for which one lens to give money. If you believe in a very short time to pass on Full Frame technology, it may be better to wait with buying a high quality zoom while alone know how things will happen to you. Both optics are perfect for shooting wedding photography . This is of course not the only lens to use for a wedding. Wedding itself is a complex event with many turns and photographic traps, so take a look and other very important lenses … but this next time.
