Canon EF 35mm f/2

ef35mmf2_1_
Review Date: Feb 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Nice maximum aperture, Very good sharpness wide open and excellent by f2.8, Small and lightweight, Fast and accurate AF, Minimum focusing distance a boon for up close and personal shots, Good price.
Cons:
Noisy "wasp in a matchbox" AF, Tends to hunt in low-light, MF ring very small, Build construction could be better, HOOD NOT INCLUDED (my gripe with Canon).
 
Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX DG Aspherical RF

20_f1_8_1_
Review Date: Feb 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Great price for 20mm wide and f1.8 speed, Very sharp from f2.5 (useable wide open), Very good colors and contrast, 8" minimum focusing distance a boon, Solid EX build, Grippy and wide MF ring with solid stops at each limit.
Cons:
No HSM, AF speed and noise are "okay", Dual-Focus clutch mechanism takes getting used to, Some may not like the 82mm size thread and overall bulk of lens, Shadow cast with hood on and internal flash (no problems with hood off or external flash).
