requisite plant shot, with some nice DoF

bokeh seems a bit...rough though with the branches in the back

Will replace this lens with either Sigma 30 f/1.4 'A or Canon 35 f/2 IS USM. As 30 or 35 is more usable on crop and f/2.8 ain't enough as my only lowlight lens.

Only 57 pages of clicking if you change your view settings. Much less clicking.

I was there...

Couple of days ago I sold the 40mm STM because it didn't give me, as a crop camera owner, anything to my photography. The lens just didn't give me a feeling "use me". Wonderful pics but not my thing.

Went through all these possibilities. Sigma 35mm A was interesting, but realistically, it would not have been wider enough. Same thing with the Canon 35, which I would have taken over the Sigma because of the IS.

Then I went through the Sigma 18-35 1.8. Tested it, and it felt awful in my hand. I wasn't about to buy a TELE, so, it just doesn't feel right with this focal length. Wonderful lens, and I was ready to put the money on the counter, but, but...

I turned to Sigma 30mm A, and found it was one of the most desirable lens in my hand. The look and the feel just yells to be taken to photography adventure. But, quite awful corner performance is something that cannot be forgiven to Sigma, when they released a new version. WHY, I ask. Remains unanswered. They just failed. Kinda okay lens from the rendering point, having quite smooth bokeh which is probably the only point why that lens exists. Awful lot of trouble with focusing, I read. No way I would buy this as I can get excellent bokeh from my other lenses.

Then I came again to the Canon IS trio, 24mm, 28mm and 35 mm. Only 35mm would give somekind of bokeh, but all three would give very very good IQ, sharpness all over, reliable focusing and IS. 28mm was my decision. It is about the best "normal" focal lenght for crop cameras.

Some comments about the 28mm IS.

-Sharp, sharp, did I mention: sharp
-Acceptable bokeh when ever you encounter it
-good balance between wide lenses and tele lenses
-very good close focusing, extends the usability of the lens a lot
-IS wonderful. I don't even think about it, but the view is steady, and the IS starts it's job quicker than you expect it to work
-feels very good quality

This lens (28mm IS) isn't anything that makes a cult following it. Nothing fancy. It just does it's job, period. I would certainly choose the 28mm IS for paid jobs over other similar focal lenght lenses.

Hope my findings help others. My idea with the choice of 28mm IS is that it is about the same focal lenght for crop sensors than 40mm is for full frame sensors.


70D. EF 70-300mm L, Tamron 90mm F2.8 VC and Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 OS HSM.
