Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM A Review
What Digital Camera
7 October 2013
Summary: Overall, there is much to recommend this lens but it isn't in the same league as the stunning full-frame 35mm f/1.4 tested previously. Although the 30mm f/1.4 is worthy of serious consideration, potential purchasers must bear in mind that it possesses weaknesses as well as strengths.
Pros: F/1.4 maximum aperture; Excellent MTF results; Full-time MF option; Near-silent AF; Metal mounting flange
Cons: Significant barrel distortion; Some colour fringing; No image stabilisation
Excerpt: Sigma's 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM is a useful prime lens for the D-SLR owner with a cropped format APS-C type sensor. Essentially it takes on the role of prime standard lens, effectively offering 45mm (1.5x), 48mm (1.6x) or 60mm (2x) - depending on which camera you use it with.
