    Cons: A bit harsh and too analytical in sharpness; focussing ring too loose, would have been nicer to handle with a bit more resistance.

    Pros: Provides a nice 38mm equiv. on my OMD EM10, making it a very enjoyable 'walk everywhere' compagnion. Fast and accurate focussing. F2.8 suits most occasions (the 'natural' sensitivity of this Oly is iso 200, so already fairly high). Reasonable close focus distance.

    Summary: This is a simple and versatile lens that is fun to use and renders great pictures. Highly recommended

    Cons: Not a lot!

    Pros: Excellent IQ; excellent fast focus; excellent CA control; excellent handling; one to have in the bag at all times.

    Summary: Great investment for a massive return in quality images at budget level money. Why pay more elsewhere for a few percentage improvements points? Well done Sigma...certainly worth having.

    Cons: - dont like to clonky focus element inside.. always sounds like its broken - plastic build - soft corners at f2.8 - electronic focus (useless at night)

    Pros: - small - quick focus - great sharpness when stopped down and even in the center at f2.8

    Summary: great lens for a small budget! very useful focal length for landscape..basically ended up being my every day goto lens..

    Cons: Lens error on occasion, remedied with restart.

    Pros: Sharp, fast enough AF, well controlled CA and distortion, good colors.

    Summary: You could spend a lot more for a lens that performs the same, so why should you. So far I am happy with the results. I will have to buy the 30 some day.
