Re: Standard Prime Lens for 7D Dillema

Thanks everyone, that was quite useful. I have heard as many positive as negative comments from owners of 30mm Sigma and it just seems like a too much of a risk to get a dodgy batch. Even tho everyone makes such a big deal out of 1 f stop I have found that still majority of photographers agree that shooting with lowest f stop reduced the sharpness and ability to focus well especially on non L series lenses etc. I myself hardly ever use 1.4 and 1.8 as I found it's not worth the sacrifice. However found it great for video shooting ISO 640.

I was very tempted with Canon 30mm but bit disappointed that it was a noisy plastic lens just like the 50mm but nowhere near as cheap. Think it's down to 28mm and Tokina ... heftier price tag and full frame lens vs macro and cropped sensor lens.
