Summary: I wanted this lens to use for inside snapshots without flash. I have a 50mm f1.4 and a 35mm f2.4, but sometimes they are just too long especially for group pictures. I want the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8, but cannot afford it.
Excerpt: Back in 2009, I got into DSLRs, primarily for shooting commercials and corporate films, sometimes short fiction. My first camera was a Canon 7D before I moved on to the 5Dmk III and Cinema line.Newcomers tend to want 3 things when taking their 1st big step away from kit lenses: - A good, fast...
Summary: 24mm is my favorite fixed focal length. Wide enough to get candid shots and great for street photography. Unfortunately this has been the softest lens (not sharp) out of any class of lens that I have used. It's going to be an immediate return. I am very disappointed in this lens.
Excerpt: This is my first digital wide angle prime lens, and I couldn't be happier. It is fast, bright and has surprising bokeh. I use primarily Sigma full-frame lenses on my T4i. After a number of years away, photography is fun again!
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: This is the only "off" brand lens I own. I borrowed one a while back from a friend because I wanted a true wide angle macro. I did a very thorough test of this lens and it is as good as my better Nikons in macro mode. Not surprisingly the color is different but a grey balance and its good to go.
