Re: Best low light lens for 700D

A Canon 24mm F2.8 STM would be good for a wider fixed lens.

I owned the Sigma 17-50mm EX DC OS HSM F2.8 on a nikon D5300 (crop)and the IQ was a major step up from kit lens.

Corners not amazing but okay.

Constant F2.8 was good in most light in galleries and museums and these cameras do ISO 6400 okay.

AF was V fast but after a year did become unreliable but that could have been my fault as just before it suffered a very hard drop.

Obviously F2.8 on crop not for really detailed interiors of cathedrals etc if not using a tripod in which case a faster lens would be better, but the IS is good on that lens too.

Great price, well built, very contrasty and sharp and good colour saturation, AF and IS.
