IQ of Sigma 24m 2.8m?

Still trying to decide on an inexpensive, fast, light prime that has decent IQ at 2.8 and very good at smaller f-stops.

Any ideas or thoughts? I guess there is an A and AF version of this. Are they the same as to lens quality?

The other option is a newer Sigma 20 1.8 and stop down to 2.8.

The sharpness of the Sigma 24mm f1.8 EX I have is phenomenal and the bokeh is great too. I never had the older MF or Pre- EX versions to compare.

I used to have the Sigma 24 2.8 in Minolta mount. I found it to be an excellent lens. Great sharpness. Some vignetting wide open on film...obviously you won't get that on APS-C. I'd get it...

Thanks for the info. Of course, I would like to use it at 2.8, else I will just use my 16-45 f4. I guess the price is low enough that I can give it a try.
