    Hi All-

    It's been a little while since I've been on. Between being sick and hurricane Florence (we didn't get too much in Raleigh, NC) I haven't been out much lately. But, with fall coming, I wanted to spice it up a bit. I sold my 18-35mm lens and bought a 24mm f/1.8G lens for an awesome price off of craigslist. I looked through my LR metadata and found I shot at 24mm a lot when I shot wide angle. I wanted to challenge myself with a prime to see if I'll think a little more creatively when composing.

    I heard nothing but rave reviews about this lens and I do believe in the hype- it's light, fast, and really sharp. I have a feeling I'll be keeping this on my D610 for a while.

    Hope you're all doing well!

    Here's a test shot for sharpness-

    Looks good. I’ve been thinking of buying a nice prime for a while. Look forward to seeing your shots with it.

    Try repositioning the note - the test of a quality lens isn’t just how sharp it is in the middle but in the edges. Then compare with a zoom

    Front to back sharpness is important but so is centre to edge/corner sharpness.

    I shoot with Sigma ART 24 - it’s an FL I use a lot too and find it’s centre sharpness is pretty much a match for my old 16-35 f4 at 24mm but at the sides it’s a lot better. Ie it has better centre to edge/corner sharpness which means my landscapes are uniformly sharp not only front to back but side to side.

    Same story for the nikkor 20mm f1.8, 35mm Sigma ART and the Sigma 50mm is about the most viceless lens I’ve ever had.
