Here’s a fun game we can all play.
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island with a camera and one lens (assuming you had a way to recharge the camera and your gear didn’t get ruined when your boat ran ashore), which lens would you want to have?
In other words, what’s your favorite lens—the one you couldn’t live without? Post your response below or on Adorama’s Facebook page). Tell us which of the lenses you own you’d choose and why. If you’re participating on Facebook, post a photo taken with this lens along with exposure and any other relevant info. Finally, if you have a web site, blog, or online collection of photos, please share a URL in your post.
That island, by the way, could be Manhattan. Don't take us too literally! ;-)
Yeah, I know, that’s like asking which is your favorite child. (“You’re all unique and I love each of you equally!”) But play along. Someone who might be looking to add some new glass his or her collection of lenses may be inspired by your choice and your explanation.
I’ll post my favorite responses in a future blog post and include the URL you supply, so you have a chance at some free traffic and publicity. Have fun!
