I have finally received the new EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM earlier this week, just in time for Edmund and Stefenie’s engagement ceremony next week. I’ve always been keen to take some shots at the corridor of Melbourne GPO so I thought it would be a great opportunity to test out the new lens in the dimly lit corridor. Once again Johanna has to be my model.
The results? The lens overwhelmed me. Not only it’s very sharp, it also performs very well in low light condition. f/2.8 also allows nice bokeh effect to be produced. The only caution is that sometimes the DOF will be too shallow for certain shots so I have to watch out if I want most parts of the photo to be sharp.
