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

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.
