Nice Lens for Indoor Snapshots

David Yeager, Amazon

  • 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. Some reviews of this lens have been negative, but I have found it perfect for my purposes. My snapshots are much better than those made by cameras with flashes.

  • Excerpt: This review was made on a full-frame Nikon D700. Situation may be different on cropped bodies. Pros: 1. Ability to focus very, very close 2. Bright, shallow DOF (f/1.8) 3. Aperture ring, in case you want to use it on a different camera, with an adapter. 4. Warm colors 5. Sharp in the center wide-open Cons: 1. Corners and border image quality wide open is non-existent. They almost blend with OOF areas. Apart from center nothing is sharp wide-open. 2.

  • Summary: For the price you can't beat it. I have it on my Nikon D800. It's sharp in the center but falls off just a bit around the edges. Great saturation and color out of this lens.

  • Excerpt: I have tried this lens on a full-frame body. This can be a very nice lens for macro work (although magnification can be an issue) provided you keep the subject more or less in the center of the image. It may be good in low light but also keep your subject in the center. Pros: 1. Very small working distance, can create some unique perspectives 2. The lens seems to be optimized for close focusing distance 3. Nice warm colors 4. Aperture ring 5. Autofocus Cons: 1.

Soft as cotton.

  • 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. Sigma's new line of stuff (i.e., 18-35) is excellent high quality stuff. I have quit a few Sigma lens' and this one is by far the worse.

  • 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. I love this lens and the quality it provides as a macro.
