I starting taking this photo only to show how easy it is to setup lights with pieces of paper to get a nice difussed effect, then I started switching lenses to see if I could see much of a difference. Pretty much, my main conclusion, is the Sigma 70-300mm was the blurriest of the bunch. All the Canon L series lenses were awesome, and the two Sigma wide angle lens are always my favoritoes cause I live the look of wide angle photos, but the two Sigma wide angle lenses are very sharp in the middle of the photo and you can get very very close with perfect focus still. All the other lenses I had to back up quite a bit. The only Macro lens I even have in this group is the Sigma 70-300mm, but I was so far back and wanted to get the entire height of the Danboards in the photo, I didn't even need the macro capability.
