Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM

PC Magazine
3 February 2009
  • Conclusion: The Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM is a fast normal angle lens for APS-C cameras, but suffers from a lack of sharpness and a good amount of barrel distortion.
  • Pros: Fast aperture. Available for many camera systems.
  • Cons: Expensive. Soft images. Noticeable distortion.

Sigma AF 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM (Nikon DX) - Review / Test Report

23 July 2008
  • Conclusion: It seems the primary design priority for the Sigma AF 30mm f/1.4 EX DC was to achieve the highest possible center resolution without caring too much about the rest. The border performance of the lens is just so-so at f/1.4 and only good when stopped down.

Sigma AF 30mm f/1.4 EX DC (Pentax K) Review / Test Report

photozone.de
23 July 2008
  • Conclusion: A quite strange design priority but there're applications for this. This is a pretty interesting lens if you want to isolate a (near-centered) object from the rest of the scene using an ultra-large aperture setting.

Sigma AF 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
22 July 2008
  • Conclusion: We all know that zoom lenses are compromises regarding speed and performance but we expect fix-focals to perform better than that. Sigma AF 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM may perform pretty good in absolute terms but for a fix-focal the lens disappoints a little.
