Landscape Photos - Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM Telephoto Lens Test

Here is another set of photos taken from my newish Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM Telephoto lens that are part of my upcoming review on the lens. These particular shots are similar to the fully automatic digital photos I posted on Sunday, however are in the landscape automatic function on the Canon EOS Rebel XTi 400D. These photos are meant to show the Canon F 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM Telephoto lens' basic performance in ideal daylight conditions.

Here are some additional details from the shoot:

  • Location: Santa Monica Mountains, near Dos Vientos Ranch
  • Equipment: Canon EOS Rebel XTi 400D with the EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM Telephoto Lens, UV filter, no lens hood.
  • Focal Length: 55mm, 70mm, 100mm, 135mm, 200mm
  • Setup: Handheld
  • Shots: Landscape Automatic, all photos use automatic focus.
  • Quality: L (10.1 Megapixels / 3.8MB) - not RAW
  • Processing / Touch-up: None. Only internal Rebel XTi JPG processing.

The house that was picked at random, mainly because of some defining elements around the roof and windows that help with clarity. Full images are included below of the 55mm and the 200mm photos for comparison, reduced to 1600x1067 by Picasa. The rest of the pictures are cropped to 800x600 so you can see the detail of the pictures at 100%. To view the full images, click on the photo and it will open for you in a new window.
