Considering Sigma 20mmf1.4, any advice - toni-a - 07-21-2019
In the past had Sigma 20mmf1.8 on 30D it was one of my favorite lenses, I am considering Sigma 20mmf1.4 Art on EOSRP
Anyone knows this lens well or has used it?
I already have Tokina 16-28f2.8 but not using because of size and weight and I am afraid of having the same issue here, any advice??

If weight and size is an issue - steer clear off the 20/1.4, it's big and heavy and performs very well. On a mirrorless body at least. I had some focus point issues with it on DSLR. You need a fast 20 mm? Canon offers them from f/2.8 right?

Why was it your favourite lens on Canon APS-C? Must not have been the wide open sharpness, or the AF performance. So, it must have been the FOV?
20mm on FF is totally different. So, it 20mm on APS-C was your thing.... 20 x 1.6 = 32mm. You then would be better off looking at a 35mm lens instead?

Yes, completely correct.
And in that case, I'd suggest the RF 35 F/1.8 IS Macro STM, which is a great lens, designed for the R-series opf cameras, has IS, and STM motor for AF, does 1:2 - great for flowers and siliarly sized items -, and is apparewntly quite good. Another advantage si that it was made for the R-series of cameras, and is conveniently quite compact too.
In addition, it is on cashback too, and actually quite cheap compared to the competition, like the Kipon 35 F/2.4, which is MF, no IS, and only 30 euros less, and that is before cashback of the Canon.
Kind regards, Wim
