Smorter is pretty well on it for the 24 as portrait. I like that it gives a different perspective but heavy environment is not something you want on all shots of a portrait shoot. Here are some of mine with it and although I like the ability of the 24 for unique portraits, like I said before it is an added benefit not a reason to get the lens.

Cropped a little(not as much as what it looks like). I was very close. Really I find the distortion minimal and don't mind getting close.

Oh yeah, my kids are 4 and 6, so they don't fill up the frame like an adult would.

here is just a goof off shot, but this may help for your take on the distortion

I was Very close to him, his elbow is probably almost at the lens, and compared to other wide lenses I have used before dropping the coin on this, I find the distortion control awesome all things considered.

Everything is relative.

Both are great lenses, but they are very different from each other. As for which one, it really depends on how wide you need to go!

Sigma has a sharper IQ and is significantly less.

But if you're a Canon fanboy...

As usual, your response has nothing to do with the op. Smh.


Gear: Yes.

If you're not responding to the original post or the post directly above you, it's kind of hard for anyone to figure out what you're responding too unless you use the quote button.

The reason people respond to you the way they do is because you're quick to call people names and you're overly aggressive in many of your posts. It really is a shame as I think you could offer so much more.

But that is why his posts are so much fun. You must play along with the game.
Kayne on POTN is like the Ken Rockwell of Photography. Just like Chuck Norris is the Ken Rockwell of martial arts.

To: the OP
I love my 24L on FF but would consider it an extreme environmental portraiture lens. Never a standard.
Another good environmental portrait lens is the 40mm stm. This is my go-to combo.
The 24L will distort close up and is not designed to be a head and shoulders portrait lens.
It is a lens designed to be in the middle of the action, telling a story with a single frame.
For a standard head and shoulders portrait lens, I suggest the 85mm 1.8
It is highly regarded and focuses faster, and weights less than it's L counterpart.

I responded to the post directly above mine. Please use common sense.

GEE sorry

Then why are you using fire with fire? SMH!

It is a different photo between using the 24L or 35L on the same subject. The 24L just as a more 3D look, a "pop" to the environmental portrait.
If your looking at a used 35L vs the 24L mk I the price is very similar. I chose the 24L II because of the extra blade and newer optics.
Also not that the 35L is not weather treated as the 24L II I bought my 40mm stm after I bought my 24L and it has kept me from buying the 35L (for now)
:D
