DFA 100mm & Sigma EX DG 24mm.

This is purely for your information, I am not trying to prove anything or make any claims.

All shot with a tripod, RAW, converted in lightroom & no PP.

I guess my only question is.... what will do better?
Hope this is of some use to someone.

I like DFA 100mm macro as a walk around candid lens. However, it sometimes flares and colour are not smooth. It is compact and light which makes it a good companion for travel.

Sigma 24mm f1.8 is definitely hard to beat. A lens I wanna get if I could get it cheap second hand. Since you have this prime, maybe reveal some bokeh ?
