any good reports about this lens ?

Hi, I live in the UK and put a post in the wanted ad's for any lens for sale here in the UK. Unfortunately I had no replies !

I am looking for prime lenses and perhaps a wide angle too. As for primes I've come across a 70mm f2.4 at a good price here in the UK and was wondering if you guys had any views/experiences with this lens ? I'm generally into taking photos of landscapes/lakes/mountains/rural buildings. At the moment I am restricted to using my kit lens.

Any input gratefully recieved.

Did you look in the lens review area?

Thanks tom

I havn't come across the lens reviews before. Very useful and the lens seems quite good and perhaps I should go for it.

thanks again, BARCUD

just make sure it's a focal length you're comfortable with before buying it.

. . . you might have a point there !

I have been using the kit lens and to be honest I havn't needed any extra length in the situations I've been in. But I do seem to use most of the kit lens range 18-55. Oh no, does this mean I have to be considering the Sigma 17-70 again !?

thanks, BARCUD
