Tower Grove Park
Posted: November 03

Today I purchased the Canon RF 24-240 mm lens.

My intention is to use it on my Canon R5 camera to replace the scenario where I have two camera bodies… one with my Canon EF 24-70 mm and the other with my Canon EF 70-200 mm.

I took it out for a spin in Tower Grove Park. The light was mid-day and therefore not optimal for photography. The focal range would seem to facilitate what I was hoping to accomplish.

Highway 95
