Hey there, I got a small question where I would like to have your opinion on.

A few months ago I was at a demo day from Samyang and the lenses really blown me away. I already got a Canon 50mm F1.4 but I want to have a prime that is a little bit wider.
What would you choose? The 24mm, or the 35mm? I am shooting with a 1.6 crop factor camera so it would end up with 38.4mm or 56mm.

If you look at the technical facts the 35mm would have a greater shallow depth of field, but the 24mm is wider...

Thanks for your reactions :).

24 for me....I like my 25 and 50 setup


Nikon D850 and a bunch of stuff, I have learned a lot here when I was shooting Canon, staying to keep learning..."Every time I set up I learn something new".

On crop, 24. Sigma 30 1.4 is a decent lens, but it's APS-C only, so no FF if you ever go in that direction.

Even on a crop they will still be 24mm and 35mm.

I love the 35mm focal length on my crop.
