Default Charlie, A Portrait @ 3-1/2yrs

Another reason why I love this camera so much is because of it's F2.8 lens. For a wide angle lens it does a great job in shooting portraits...and it's tack sharp at f2.8.

Paul, a wonderful kid and a lovely portrait. I am also pleasantly surprised that the 28mm could take portraits this close without ungainly distortion.

Best.

Paul,

He's wonderful and this camera catches him well. People forget how the Canon 15 mm fisheye can be so kind to folk in the center 2/3 of the picture. Wide angle doesn't have to scare us!
