Hey y'all,
I recently purchased a Canon Eos Rebel T7i for my other hobby astrophotography. Since I now have a good DSLR body I figured I might as well get the proper lenses to capture amazing photos of my tank. So what Canon lenses are y'all using to capture what in your tank? TIA

A normal lens will work, the ability to use macro focus helps, a faster lens is better than a slower one, and the right filter makes all the difference in the world. But I'm not a Canon user (well, my photo printer is a Canon).

I just got an older Nikon to use for taking photos of the night sky (the Milky Way and Aurora Borealis). So I need a fast wide angle lens and I hate to spend the money for the limited number of photos I'll take with it.

BTW, I use a Nikon P900 as my 'go to' camera. 24mm to 2000mm zoom. It's a great camera for sports (race cars for me), nature photography and really any daytime photography. But the lens is slower and it get tough to use as the sun goes down.

Good luck with your aquarium photography adventure. And I'd love to see those astronomy photos!
