I'm trying to find a travel lens, and am testing Sigma and Tamron 17-50, but they're big for what I want. Oleg you have sold me on the 24/2.8. It's in the mail to my house now. Thanks for your wonderful pictures.

I just got back from a trip to the UK a couple of weeks ago. I'd thought about which lenses to bring. 17-55, my 70-200, normal stuff. In the end all I put in my bag was the 40D and my 24 2.8. Worked great, such a competent little lens.

Yep, the 1.6-crop body and this little lens is an excellent travel combo. On my last two trips I used it for 95% of all my photography and for the last 5% I used the 50mm f1.8 MKII. And still I wished for a lighter kit ;)


Best wishes,
Oleg.

Seems like there are only few people who have (and love) this lens.
It is a really nice lens, it is very sharp wide open and outresolves my
5D II at f5.6. The weight, size, speed and the cheap price make this
lens an excellent choice for street and travel photography. I love it :D

Here are two shot taken with a 10D:

Just picked up a used one of these. Very impressed. Corner & edge sharpness very good even wide open. Center sharpness impressive as well. Makes a decent close up lens to boot. Nice cheap quality prime here!

This lens is severely underrated. I've had it for most of the year and have used it on a 400D, 1D classic and 1D2. It's been my widest lens since I've had it and even on the 400D, it's not too shabby as a focal length.

Here's some recent ones on the 1D2:

And some older ones:

I think all of those are at f/2.8 as well.

Hi!

New to the forum, long time lurker.

Just picked up this 24mm today on the cheap and am loving it so far. Not many folks talk about it. Great lens for a crop.

It's often said that the nifty-fifty should be the first lens for the budget-concious (or budget-strapped ;)) DSLR beginner. It's been in my case, and I managed some nice & sharp close-ups of flowers with that lens, also nice portraits. But for landscapes, the nifty-twin shure is the 24 f/2.8 !

I've seen here some very, very remarkable shots (including portraits & flower close-ups). My next lens will be a 24 !

For me this lens is adequate but overpriced for what it offers.Long overdue an upgrade I think.Colours are it's strong point, also rather good for close ups. (external link)
