Re: Sig 30 vs canon 28/1.8


The Sigma is my favorite lens (also
have 24-105, 50/1.4, 10-22, and now a new 17-55!) and it is razor
sharp at f/1.4 with no halation (compared with my 50/1.4 - also sharp
but has some halation).

When it was released back in '05 it so changed my appreciation of the 20D that ultimately, the 30/1.4 prevented me from getting the 5D (because Canon was so slow to get a 50L out)... and it is a good thing too, because the IQ you can get away with for under $1k (XTi with the 30/1.4) is right up there with anything I have seen from the $3700 FF combo - 2.7 extra MP notwithstanding.
