Robin, London Happy go lucky photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Close focusing.
Pretty decent sharpness.
Decent bokeh.
Included soft case and lens hood.
Aperture goes to 1.8 and this lens doesn't have a Canon L pricetag.


Bad points:
Front element extends a fair bit when focusing, changing frame size (focus breathing).
Can be hard to manual focus as tiny movements of the focus ring can throw the focus off.
Not the best lens for DSLR video (see above). To be fair, it is primarily a photography lens!
Some colour fringing in certain conditions.
2-part manual/auto focus switching.
Overall rating 9.0

Manufacturer's Description

Sigma’s 24mm F1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro lens is a large aperture wide angle lens giving photographers freedom of expression with the ability to set the desired aperture and get as close as 7.1 inches allowing the photographer the juxtaposition between near and backgrounds in the distance.

The 84º angle of view is perfect for landscape photos while also great for shooting group shots without distorting the subjects at the edge of the frame and compact enough for working in tight quarter with a single subject.
