This is a review I put together for shotkit.com
I have very little loyalty to brands, and I buy what is best for my individual needs. I own several Sony lenses, but also have a selection of other manufacturers in my bag: Zeiss, Sigma and Tamron.
I often get asked why I picked the Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM given I could have purchased the Sigma ART for half the cost, or even the Zeiss Batis for a little less.
