Duration:   4  mins

Photographers sometimes need a quality versatile lens. In this free video, world renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant takes you to exotic settings and shows you the versatility of a lightweight 70mm-200mm f/2.8 zoom lens. You can handhold the lens because at f/2.8, it lets in plenty of light, and along with image stabilization, you can easily get sharp photos even in low light. The lens also mates well with a 1.4x teleconverter for longer shots. Join Ian Plant as he demonstrates the benefits of a 70mm-200mm zoom lens and shows you how to take portraits of wildlife and intimate shots of landscapes.

    I don’t disagree with any of the statements made in the video, but to be honest, I find it difficult to trust the judgement of anyone who takes an expensive lens out on a shoot without a lens hood for at least minimal protection. Not to mention cutting down on the chance of lens flare.

    To me, it would be like carrying a camera without a wrist or neck strap. Is it necessary? Not at all. Not until it really was necessary but your lens is now in need of replacement.
