Sigma 24mm 2.8

This photo of my son was shot with a Sigma 24mm at F2.8 in available light. I like the color rendition of this lens (very old school like) and the OOF areas is quite nice and nuetral. Lens is sharp up close and yet the DOF is still thin that my son's ears and the toy is out of focus. (Focused on his eye BTW).

This sigma lens is no longer being produced. I got mine on discount as new old stock. The review at clinched it for me. If you should see one give it a try.

Very nice!

Out of curiosity, what do you mean about the color rendition? Could you elaborate?

Lets just say the colors are different when shot with my Pentax 18-55 Kit lens. The pentax lens usually would be a lot warmer than this. BTW this is straight Jpeg from camera. No sharpening or PP applied. Image just reduced in size.
