I’ve invested whole lot of money into a new lens Canon 24mm f/1,4. Have you read any of lens tests and it sounds very wise, but basically you know nothing until you make a test for yourself. So HERE IS AN EXCELENT TEST and I’ll publish only pictures and you make a judgment. I did a test with Canon 5D set on neutral picture style, so no sharpening or saturation happen on this images.

What do you think? 24 f/1,4 is much more expensive then Sigma and it is the best lens I ever had, but it’s much more expensive then Sigma 24mm f/1,8 or Canon 28mm f/1,8. My favorite lens used to be Canon 28mm f/1,8 and I bought it in 1999 and it worked fine until this year. This lens don’t like asphalt I can tell you that!

I’ll do more test comparing zoom lens with fixed focal length lenses. Expect slaughter!

  1. Čestitam za super nakup!
    Res je najbolje naredit test sam, ker tako najbolje vidiš, ali ti leča res “leži”.
    Verjamem, da se ti poraja vprašanje, ali je vredno dati toliko več denarja za 24L. Moje mnenje je, da je vredno. Dobiš 2/3 blende, boljšo zgradbo, zanesljivejši fokus.
    Meni osebno veliko pomeni blenda zelo veliko, zato sem zamenjal 50/1.8 za 50/1.4, čeprav je slednja trikrat dražja.

    Veliko dobrih fotk z novo lečo ti želim pa srešno tebi in družini v ’08.

  2. Moj glavni argument je bil, da sem večino objektivov, ki jih uporabljam kupil 1999, kar pomeni, da je to predvsem investicija in če razdeliš strošek na 10 let, je to zanemarljivo. Seveda, če služiš s to investicijo.

  3. I haven’t the technical depth in photography to understand about the lenses, but I do understand about asphalt! It’s too bad you had to replace your favorite lens.
    I sympathize.

  4. Interesting lenses, I think my next will also be a wide, fixed lens (24 to 28 mm). I recently bought Canon’s 50 f/1.8, it is awesome value for money, especially when you can’t afford any lens with the letter ‘L’ in the name 🙂

    Can’t wait to see comparisons between zoom lenses and primes, I’ve really become fond of good prime lenses.
