It is believed that some of the best legacy lenses were produced by Komine and Kino Precision. They were available under various brands and one of them was Panagor. I have Panagor PMC Auto Wide Angle 24mm F2.5 lens and we will check how it is compares to previously tested Tokina and Sigma 24mm. Panagor is quite small and lightweight, only 217 grams without caps. It has slightly better light (F2.5 vs F2.8) and a larger front element with filter size of 55mm vs 52mm in Tokina and Sigma. Will it be better? Let’s see.
In this test, we will take a closer look at the rather popular lens – Sigma Super-Wide 24mm F2.8. It is one of the smallest 24 mm lenses and weights 194 grams (without caps). It is also quite cheap. With a bit of luck, you can buy it for around 50-60 EUR with highest prices between 80 and 90 EUR. This lens was not considered optically good by most users, but rather was perceived as an average, cheap alternative to the more expensive 24s. Is it worth buying?
