gives clear images and is also great at macro photos

Summary: gives clear images and is also great at macro photos. I got it because it's a wide lens for when I need to take photos of people and not just the food and makes it convenient instead of switching out the canon 60mm macro lens for a wider lens
Super Sharp at Wide-Open Aperture with Great Bokeh

Summary: Amazingly sharp lens enhances photographic creative versatility. I own the Nikon version. The best way to use it is in Aperture-Priority mode wide-open at f/1.8. It's got amazing sharpness (when correctly focussed) and offers superb bokeh effect with shallow (but not too shallow) depth-of-field when...
Am I the only person who is having "ERR" with this lens?

Summary: I just received this lens from Amazon this morning. Ran home after work and couldn't wait any longer to play with it. I first put it on my 5D and had a few shots. Man, I have to say the image quality is great! But after few shots, the "image play back" feature on the back of my 5D stopped working.
Summary: For the price this Sigma 28mm f/1.8 prime is a great deal. It allows you to take really creative shots in low light and does a decent job at macro photos (nowhere near as good as a dedicated macro lens, but its ok).
Summary: Since I've purchased this lens it has hardly left my K110D body. A bit soft wide open but if low light cannot be worked around it's better than the alternatives (flash, motion blurr). Beautiful colors and especially good transition from in-focus to out-of-focus areas.
Summary: Let me start by saying I'm not a hardcore fan of any particular brand. I like to gauge lenses by their individual merits, rather than discussing them as a brand. The Sigma 28mm f/1.8 EX is an excellent lens from an optical standpoint.
Probably a fine lens, but didn't work well with APS-C camera

Summary: I now have bought two lenses that were not designed for the smaller digital camera sensor, and both consistently fail to autofocus, the Sigma 28mm and the Canon 50mm f1.8 II, both relatively inexpensive lenses, and both designed for film cameras I believe.
