the 24, by the accounts i've read, is the weakest of the litter.

Tru dat. It's just too expensive. Not that the 24mm L is very good wide open (only gets useable at f/2 and higher in my opinion), but the Rokinon shouldn't cost 700-800$ if you see how it performs. I've not seen many shots with it, but it's not worth it for sure. Hopefully they're going to do something about it.
I have said it, and will say it again: I really hope Samyang is going to make a 50mm some time soon.

hey guys, how does this lens perform when mounted on a crop sensor?

Equally awesome. It's longer, more like 50mm, but just as amazing.

+1

it basically becomes ridiculously sharp across the whole frame.

Vega_0502, I use this lens exclusively on a 50D APS-C sensor, I really like it, you still get awesome bokeh and it's like a true 50mm lens on a FF which is my favorite focal length!

really nice stuff lately guys! here's some from me from a shoot I did for a handbag/accessories company, these are all natural light, the bottom one has a white reflector in it

thank bobby. what sealed the deal was that 25% off sale a few weeks ago. basically got a brand new lens for a used lens price.

i'm coming to the conclusion that the sig 24/1.8 is going up for sale. nifty little lens and i'll miss it but this one is really becoming my go-to walkabout. plus i have the tokina to cover 16 and down.

Award-Winning images by paradiddle luke! You should change your nick to Cool Eyed Luke that way xD


pkilla: The 24 exhibits A LOT of CA and it's quite soft (at least on my 2 copies i test before i decided to go with the perfect copy of this 35), when i slap the 35, bam...that's it, deal's set off :)

Damn, this thread has really heated up since I sold mine. I sold it rather grudgingly, and always kind of planned on another...maybe the time is drawing near. Unfortunately, sold my 5Dc and have a 5D3...won't take a focus screen :mad:
