The Niftiest Fifty!

12 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I have only been into photography for about 6 months and I started with a 2008 Sony Alpha a300 and two lenses, the 18-70mm kit lens and the beer can sigma 70-300mm (paid $[*] for the lot used). After a chat with a pro photographer friend of mine, I decided that I needed to marry the lens, and date the body. My body is working just fine, so I hocked the two lenses (for $[*] - so I made profit!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

You'd think I was a pro with this lens!

  • Excerpt: I'm using a Rebel T1i and the lens works great. Perfect low light prime lens and the 1.4 setting offers the ability to shoot amazing photos with blurred backgrounds. Lens is noisy when focusing during video. Very fast focus.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Noisy

Great lens for DSLR video

  • Excerpt: This lens is a must if you are starting with DSLR video or if you want to add a great lens to your collection. I use this lens with my Canon T3i in order to film small events and interviews and it has never let me down since I bought it. The image quality is great, it easily competes with Canon L series. Also, it does a nice bokeh effect and it works very well under low light situations.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

Go-To Lens for video, prep shots.

  • Excerpt: While there may not be a "perfect" lens in the world, the combination of features and price make this 30mm come darn close! Having shot with the predecessor to this iteration of Sigma's 30mm f/1.4 I had a good idea of what to expect, though I've been thrilled with the improvements in build quality with this version. Metallic body and noticeably smoother focus ring make this lens a joy to shoot with.

Good news from Fukushima

  • Excerpt: The Japanese family company Sigma has been producing third-party lenses for decades already. Thus far their policy has been offering "good enough" products for prosumers on a budget. At the price, the products were good but not comparable to the original brand quality. With the 'Art' series lenses this has changed. Their flagship 35mm f/1.4 for full frame bodies has impressed the testers and the users all over the world. It is not cheap.
  • Pros: Build quality, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Looks Darn Cool, Nice Bokeh, Picture quality, Quality
  • Cons: Heavy

Highly Recommended

  • Summary: I am using for comparison the Pentax 31mm f/1.8 fa limited lens, this may not be fair sense the Pentax is currently almost 4x more money, but I feel the Sigma compare quite well to this lens in image quality where it counts on a lens of this type the center is very sharp! I mostly use this for portraits and picture that I want a creamy brokah to give a picture a 3D pop and this lens delivers!

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: First off, I will say I am an armature photograph and see photography as a hobby rather than a career. For my purposes, this lens is fantastic. To start, the build quality of this lens is amazing. I upgrade to this lens from a 40mm Canon pancake lens with a max aperture of 2.8. Compared to that lens, it's weightier and larger, however I love that about this 30mm. The 40mm felt toyish to me and was constructed of plastic; this Sigma is made mainly from metal.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
