Canon 24mm F2.8
« on: February 28, 2006, 01:00:56 PM »
hello,

     Just wondering if anyone had tried this lens. I got one used for P4,200. did i get a good deal? The build is quite better compared to the 50mm F1.8 II. It has a metal mount and a distance scale. Pictures are very much usable at 2.8. At F4, it produces very sharp pictures.

     Any other real life experiences with this lens?

Thanks,
Randal

looks like you got a good deal there, though i haven't used that lens, people at fredmiranda.com that purchased the 24mm are quite happy:

Great buy at that price, brand new is around 15k right? :) That seems wide enough on a DSLR, but may overlap lang nga sya with the 24-70L. However, it's a lot lighter and obviously more discreet (how's that for an oxymoron?)

OT: how's the 200L? Were you able to get it fixed? :)

i was looking for this lens last year but couldn't find one.  i think you've got a good deal.  let me know if you're disposing it. btw, how's the performance, any sample picture?

Thanks for the feedback. The lens is about the size of the 50mm 1.8II. It's a bit heavier probably because of the metal mount.

About the 200mm 2.8. I sold it to a shop at Quiapo (Acel) and use the money to buy an EX-430 Speed light and the used 28mm F2.8 lens. I checked it last monday and somebody has already brought the lens.
