Sharp, petite and sturdy

  • Summary: My widest prime is the EF 24 2.8. I purchased it new in 1990, so it's stood the test of time. There are lots of things to like about this lens: small, light, close focusing (25cm), well corrected for distortion, sharp, contrasty and flare resistant. It complements a travel kit nicely due to its 58mm filter size and diminutive statue. It employs a rear focusing group so the lens doesn't rotate or change length during AF.

Fine lens for the buck; honestly described; carefully packed; promptly delivered

  • Summary: (1) The older I get, and I'm very old, the heavier my my photo gear seems to become -- largely for the glass in my relatively fast zoom lenses. (2) A zoom's every focal length is a quality compromise, inferior to an equivalent prime lens, even a less costly item like this. (Absolutists may grouse about its imperfections, while others are busy using it to make very good pictures.) (3) Big, fat lenses sometimes intrude between me and my subjects.

  • Summary: This is a good prime lens. Great for those wide shots you need at weddings. Focus is good, and is very lite.

Great lens for its' money

  • Summary: Great lens. My old one was stolen, unfortunately, and Canon discontinued it at the same time. The new one has Image Stabilizer, which I do not really need on 24mm lens. Plus, the price for the new one does not look reasonable.

  • Summary: Good for the price. I don't mind the buzzing when focusing. A good step up from the kit lens 18-55mm. Highly recommend to buy camera body only without any kit lens if you haven't alredy.

I've been looking for the best prime for my crop sensor camera

Mindcontrol, Amazon

  • Summary: And I believe this is it. With the 1.6x crop on my T3I this turns out to be about 38mm. It is perfect for general walk-around shooting or candids. I also really like canons 35mm lens but the fixed focal lengths on this one serves me better. Very lightweight lens and it does look a little cheaply made, but once again I don't plan on tossing it around like a football so it should hold up.
