Time to upgrade my camera gear, new 24-105 lens

I have had Canon gear for years and have been lucky to work on projects with some awesome digital photographers like Charles Mauzy, Rob Galbraith, and Kevin Gilbert, getting tours of the White House press photographers processes and US aircraft carriers. 

I posted on my past working on digital photography.

This is not a data center post, but one about competition and innovation.

If you are a high-end photographer person you use the RAW imaging format, a higher quality image format vs. JPEG.

After spending more time taking pictures at conferences, I decided its time to upgrade my workhorse lens.  I have a 10-22 lens for ultra-wide angle. and 70-200 lens for telephoto.  And, a 28-75 that is not of the same quality, but I use the most.

My next lens is a 24-105MM F/4L IS USM lens.

Lugging my Canon 7D and lens to conferences is heavy, but it allows me to get good pictures during presentations and quickly download them to my laptop, and upload them to this blog.

I’ll be at GigaOm Structure on June 22-23 trying my toy, workhorse lens.
