I'm thinking about this lens for a nice 35mm equivalent (38.4) on a crop body. Is this a good idea? Any barrel distortion with this lens? Its technically a wide angle so I was just wondering.

I would Like a nice prime in that range. I find myself having to back up too much with a 50mm.

I find that focal length pretty perfect on a crop and its nice and wide on FF. Some distortion on FF, but nothing on a crop

are you think v1 or v2? v1 is not as sharp in the corners but on a crop you'll be ok. my 24L v1 is not as sharp as my 85Lv2 wide open (but it shouldn't be...), this is a nice focal length, if you like the ~35MM equivalent on crop. i love this FL on full frame.

Version II. If there is no distortion on a crop, then I definitely want it!

Distortion should be very minimal on APS-C

I have the first version and have used the second version a bit (CPS) and saw no real reason to upgrade. Its a great lens.

24L on a crop kicks a$$, as it does on FF. I've had ver1 for over 3 years now.

V2 is the one to get. I have it on my 7D and it is a great lens. The focus is pretty quick and it is very sharp at f2.0.
