Sigma 24mm Super Wide II F2.8 A-mount lens review by SChurchill
|SChurchill#10856 date: Jan-15-2013|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 20mm f1.8 EX DG Asp RF|
|price paid:||70 GBP|
|negative:||The AF on mine sounds like a washing machine washing a bag of spanners.|
24mm isn't the most useful focal length on APS-C.
|comment:||I got this when I didn't have much cash available for lenses. It looks and sounds like a dog but it performs really well. |
To be honest it gives my much more expensive 20mm f1.8 a run for its money in image quality.
It is a great close up lens if you don't have a macro for static subjects.
Mine didn't have a hood but have never noticed any flare issues with it. However, I've not really tried to push it to its limits.
If you don't have a lot of cash then this lens is easily worth its modest price.
