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.

  • 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.

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...

If only vigneting could be reduced...

  • 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.

  • 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...
  • 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 ...

  • Summary: Jetzt habe ich Canon 500d. Er hat crop die Matrix 1,6. Ist sehr kompliziert, das Objektiv für die optimale Nutzung der nötigen Brennweite auszuwählen. Dieses Objektiv hat keinen breiten Winkel.
