Hello everybody, i found a small shop in Bahrain on clearance, so they offered me these sigma lenses for the same price (24mm F1.8 , 28mm F1.8 ) and sigma 30mm F1.4 for only 280$ each, ofcourse brand new with one year sigma warrenty, so im going today to buy either of them, which one is the sharpest? and by the way i shoot alot of video with my T2i and here is my tools

*T2i
*Canon 50mm F1.8
*Canon 55-250mm IS
*Canon 18-55 IS
*Kenko tubes
*Lens baby composer

So i personally need a wide fast lens for video, im afraid that the 30mm is not wide enough compared to my 50mm, any idea?

Yep, and resell the ones you decide you don't like.

If you can only afford one buy the sigma 30mm.

Buying them all would probably be the best, then you can sell to POTN members :P
That is an unbelievable deal for a new brand sigma 30mm though

30mm is the sharpest and fastest, but the 24mm and 28mm focus closer and also work on FF cameras like the 5Dmk2.

I'd go 30mm or 24mm

Personally, I'd get the 24 and the 30 and if I find I'm barely using one I'd sell it.

The Sigma 30 is a gem, buy the other ones for resale =)
