24~28mm prime lenses
Feb 21, 2010

My wife has a Panasonic Lumix GH1 and recently got the Lumix 20mm F1.7 prime lens for it (a 40mm equivalent with the 2x crop factor) for about $400. What a gorgeous lens for available-light photography! We took it to the Ice Hotel in Quebec and took night shots inside under the colored lights which turned out wonderfully bright and sharp.

It got me wanting something similar for my Canon Rebel XSi. With its 1.6x crop factor that means I'd me looking for something in the 24mm~28mm range. Is there anything in that same $400-500 price range that comapares for the Canon? The only one I saw doing a quick search was the Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM, but it looks like that one has problems with CA. Is there anything else better?
