Perfectly sharp, lightweight and dirt cheap, this lens is ideal for evening and indoor photography. Its 35mm focal length is roughly equivalent to the human eye's perspective (on a APS-C sensor).

Advantages

  • Very sharp
  • Fast - great for low light
  • Lightweight
  • Small
  • Cheap
  • Filter thread does not rotate

Disadvantages

  • Prone to some purple fringing on high contrast areas when shooting wide open
  • Fixed focal length

If I am shooting with crop sensor, the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 is my "must have" lens.

Ditto to this... the 18-35 f/1.8 replaces three prime lenses and is just as sharp.
