I have been using a EF-S 55-250 for shooting product photography for a few years now (a Rebel t3i). It works okay, but after having read up on different focal lengths I am wondering if I couldn't get a little more sense of depth perhaps and less flattening of the objects being shot with a different lens. All my work is done on a tripod with plenty of light and shutter speed to get the job done. I do like being able to step back from the objects I am shooting (maybe two to three feet), which for right now are objects about the size of a bread box generally. I shoot glass that I make and sometimes they are small objects, about 3" in diameter all the way up to no more than 18" in weight, perhaps up to 24" in width. In a few cases I will shoot multiple items, which makes the field of view larger (I have to really step back for those right now). I envision being able to perhaps shoot my work in addition to the backdrop controlled situation I have now to more natural surrounds (homes, even outside) and would like the luxury of a wider view but not so wide that there is a lot of distortion. I have considered a 50 mm but not having used that size in recent memory, I am not sure how it behaves. I have been looking at a EF 24-70 as a possible starting point. Now that is a zoom lens, and my assumption here is it will probably give me more macro shots than I will really need or use, but the 35-60 range of that zoom lens might be about right for a lot of things. Absent having a shop where I can try on lenses, does anyone know of a site that shows product examples or photos shot with different lenses along with the size of the objects being photographed? It's a bit of a spend for me right now so I want to find something that will give me a little flexibility but in a different range than this one lens I already have. It would also be nice to use it also for other things like people and outside shots, but I am trying to hone in on a lens that will give me the best bang for my buck while getting me into a different focal range for the work that I do with product. I would say that it is nice to have my camera a slight distance from the objects, simply because the glass will reflect so much sometimes, but I don't need to be as far away as I currently need to be with my current zoom, which tends to be about three feet or so for a lot of what I am shooting. My thanks in advance!
