Which Lens Should I Use?

Sat Apr 07, 2007 5:26 am

So I have three lenses and I wanna go shoot some  Smile

These are the lenses I have:

Minolta AF 35-80 F4-5.6
Minolta AF 75-300 F4.5-5.6 (Big Beercan)
Sony AF DT 18-70 F3.5-5.6

Which of these is the better one for airplane shooting in bright sunshine and no clouds? I will get close to the plane (ramp access)

I would recommend the Minolta AF 5-80 F4-5.6 or Sony AF DT 18-70 F3.5-5.6 since you get close. If you are able bring the "Big Beercan" for action shots or distant motives.

I'd go with the 18-70 since the distance is not an issue.
