ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sigma 24-70mm EX DG HSM
price paid:30 euro
positive:It is very light and fairly sharp. Colours are ok to.
negative:The build-quality is very light and feels like that.
comment:It is a really nice sharp (less around the corners) wide angle lens on a fullframe camera (and cheap). Once you get used to the feeling and the build of the lens, you can get really nice shots with it. I use it with a CPL-filter and it's really enjoyable to take photos on 18mm. Because it is light, it's a good extra to carry in your bag when you go outside. CA can also be fast corrected in post-processing so is the flare.
