Sigma 24mm f1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro

24_f1_8_1_
Review Date: Jun 28, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Its cheap, comes with a hood and its fast
Cons:
Very soft at f1.8 but stop down a couple of stops and it becomes very useable

For the price this is hard to beat. Yes it can be soft. Yes it is a bit big. But at 2/3 of the price of its nearest Canon equivalent which only goes to f2.8 it is excellent value for money. Build quality is good. The motor isn't that noisy. At f1.8 quite soft, much better at f2.0, by f4.0 very usable. If you can afford L glass buy that, if not get the sigma.
