  • Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Extremely sharp to the corners, no CA, low distortion, tilt & shift
    Cost, large filters

    I was looking for a lens which was flexible enough to shoot buildings and landscapes, without having to correct for keystone errors. Well the only way to go is to get a TS-E lens. I read the reviews and feedback from users, and this is THE 24mm to get. It may not have the f1.4 or autofocus, but it is sharp, really sharp, and the creative effects from lens tilt just increase your creative options.

    Takes a little getting used to at first: manual focus and manual exposure setting. The result is well worth the effort. Highly recommended.

  • Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Ultra fast autofocus, decent sharpness, bright lens
    Soft corners, some CA, cost

    This is a bright lens, good for its fast autofocus, shooting young kids running around. Even if they move, the wide angle is sufficient to cover the area. Has nice bokeh and good for low light photography. I now realize its a bit expensive, but still cheaper than the 35L and 24L. A poor man's fast wide angle lens.

  • Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM APO Macro

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Really sharp and bright tele macro lens

    A good tele and macro lens, with excellent sharpness. Virtually no CA, worth every cent.
    Can use it as a portrait lens too, and here the bokeh is really nice round donuts.
