good but I went vintage instead...

  • Summary: I ordered this lens primarily for landscape, but I also picked up an old 1970's Olympus Zuiko 24mm f/2.8 as well. Found in on craigslist for under one hundred clams, and bought an EOS adapter from Amazon for about thirty clams. Did some comparison shots, and the Canon 24mm is undoubtedly better at wider apertures (f/5.6 and wider), and generally, the contrast is better all around.

not much choice

  • Summary: This is a nice lens, relatively small, with decent resolving power (better at close distances)and a great,IMO, focal length for an 1.6 crop. What I didn't like was that it is relatively slow for a fixed focal lenth at 2.8, it does not have full time manual focus, my 50 1.4 seemed to resolve (this is a subjective conglomerate of resolution and contrast) better at infinity focus.

Not sharp enough for me

  • Summary: I have the Canon 35/2.0 prime lens, which I like very much but on my Canon XTi, it's not quite wide enough. So, I purchased this lens and also a Sigma 18-50/f2.8 EX Macro to take on vacation, thinking the Sigma would be used for more flexibility, and the 24mm for a very light walk-around lens. In my tests, though, my 24/2.8 wasn't nearly as sharp as my 35/2.0. It might have just been my copy of the lens, I don't know. But, the Sigma was as sharp as the 24mm.

If only vigneting could be reduced...

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this lens to have a fixed, light lens to use with my digital EOS 10D (due to 1.6 crop factor it has the same viewing angle than a 45 mm lens, in the "standard" range). I use it in "keep it simple" photographic sessions. Resolution and overall image quality are quite decent; but it has one main drawback: vigneting is non-negligible at f/2.8, even inside the digital cropped frame (so I can't guess how bad could it be in a full 35 mm frame).

  • Excerpt: Первое впечатление - нет виньетки! Супер! Это облегчает жизнь при съемке панорам! Уррра! Второе впечатление - геометрия очень недурна, вертикали близки к нормальным (по крайней мере в сравнении с 24-105L). Оставляю залог в магазине, беру с собой на тесты.Тута все и началось... Длительные и дотошные сравнения показали, что данный фикс "делает" на соответсвенном фокусном 24-105L практически по всем параметрам (особенно по геометрии и виньетированию) НО!
  • Pros: Легкий, компактный, приличная геометрия рисунка для такого угла, практически не заметно виньетирование, относительно большая светосила, это приятно.
  • Cons: - шумный, медленный моторчик, непривычно после USM (но это пустяки);, - кольцо фокусировки в режиме AF неактивно (тоже пустяки);, - значительный бэк-фокус у данного экземпляра (тоже пустяки, лечится на 5Дмк2 за пару минут);, - выраженная ХА даже по горизонтальным линиям, и даже в зоне ГРИП может прорисоваться;, - байонет закпывается непривычно туго... это напрягает и даже немного пушает!, - неприятно искажает ББ - "холодит" , дял любителей съемки в jpg - серьезный нед...
