Summary: I'm not a great or professional photographer so my opinion may not mean much. I like the lens. It does what I expected it to do. My only complaint would be its size, its big, but I read that in a review before I bought it so I really have no right to bitch.
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.

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.
