comment:This is a fantastic lens for the price. It compares very well with the 24mm. In fact I don't notice too many differences other than the 4mm. Its light, its very sharp (centers even wide open) and sharpens up across the whole frame when stopped down a notch or two. For the price this is a tough lens to beat for a wide prime.
