Great on my crop sensor T3i

SeriouslyRelaxed, Amazon

  • Summary: I use a T3i crop sensor camera and wanted a 35mm equivalent mainly for video work. I use this lens about 50/50 for photo and video. This one since it functions like a 32mm I find it is a very versatile focal length. I find it to be great in low light, vivid color, and sharp at 2.8. There is barely perceptible barrel distortion on the crop sensor camera. Overall I love this lens and would suggest it for both photography and video for a crop sensor camera.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens used (1 month old )and was a little cautious about it's value.Took some pictures and was very pleased.Having other wide angle Len's to compare with 24-105,24-85 and17-40 I can say this 20mm lens is as good or better tan most of the other lens.I like the build quality and how light it is and it is very sharp.My 5D mark 3 helps with it's lens correction.
  • Pros: Build Quality, Light Weight, Sharp

Great

  • Excerpt: I shoot this as a wide on 7D. With full frame one day, I'll review again. Right now I like the results I'm seeing. This lens is easy to use, gives consistent very good results, is sharp and I'm not seeing obvious distortion, CA etc. For me it's one of those underrated, but in fact great, lens that never cause trouble. The fact you shoot without thinking much about the lens (as is my case with this lens) is a good sign, if you're not a geek.

Love it

  • Excerpt: Back when I shot on my Nikon FM I had a 20mm f2.8 lens and I loved it. Used it for street photography all the time. When I bought Canon, I held off getting a similar lens and now I'm very happy that I did. Great color, I like vignetting and works great on my 7D and Mark 5D III.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: This is my first wide angle lens and I love it. I can be close to something and still get it all in the shoot. Before I was backing up forever. I took this picture I posted with this lens and I was very close to the truck not having to back away from it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Summary: Preloved. Images are crisp and sharp. Good for budding photographers. Served me well for almost 2 years. Sold as changed gears to M4/3 for weight reduction. Package arrived as promised. Well packed.

Wide loving!

  • Excerpt: I use this mainly for landscapes, street photography, and astrophotography. Its lightweight, has a good and quick auto focus, is good value for the price. From my preliminary test shots I think that is very sharp in the center of the images, and not as sharp in the corners. I need to play with it some more and I'll be doing some night photography with it soon. I did use some ND filters with it and was pleased with the outcome.
