min100 F2.8 macro
|negative:||Its a sigma so it will probable go wrong at some point|
flares more than modern lenses
|comment:||Wanted a 24mm prime but mino24's are expensive here, so |
took a risk with an old sigma,TBH wasn't expecting very much.Boy was I wrong! this lens is just fantastic.The sharpness and colour both stand out in nearly every picture.
Its perfect for landscape, close ups, street shooting.From 5ins to infinity. Usable wide open but by F4 is super sharp. Bokeh is nice for a wide angle. By F5.6 vitually everything is in focus so its great for street shots. Images have a real lucidity and 3d ness to them,To my eyes it blows away the well regarded sony 35 F1.8,it's sharper with far more natural colours.
I have now bought another,which is just as good.
so two for less than one min 24mm costs!
Both mine focus fairly quietly and quickly, and it is always
dead accurate.I always rated my min35-105 as my best buy,not any more, this even beats that for colour.
For the price, in my opinion there is no better bargain for A-mount primes
