Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN First Look Review

  • Excerpt: The Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN is the closest thing to a “fast 50″ that we can get right now for Sony’s NEX models in the native E-mount.  I’ve been playing with it for a couple of days and, in short, I think it’s a nice complement to the 18-55mm kit lens.  At $199, it’s certainly a lens that NEX owners should consider adding to their kit.

Sigma AF 30mm f/2.8 EX DN (Sony E mount) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
9 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 30mm f/2.8 EX DN is a cute little fellow but not only that - it's good quality stuff, too. This is especially true for the center performance which is nothing short of breathtaking in the relevant aperture range. The image borders & corners aren't quite as hot but decent enough for sure. Distortions are basically absent and you don't really need to worry about vignetting that much either.

[REVIEW—SIGMA 30mm f2.8 EX DN lens for mirrorless cameras]

DPexpert
4 April 2012
  • Excerpt: This lens is designed for use on mirrorless system cameras and currently comes in mounts for Olympus/Panasonic micro four thirds cameras and for Sony NEX cameras. The film-equivalent angle of view on the Olympus/Panasonic is 60mm and on the Sony 45mm. Construction quality matches Sigma’s best lenses, which is very good indeed. The chunky little body is encased in the rubberised material that feels so good on all their best lenses.

30 mm f/2.8 EX DN

LensTip.com
29 March 2012
  • Excerpt: In January 2012 the Sigma company presented two lenses designed for mirrorless cameras - the Sigma 19 mm f/2.8 EX DN and the Sigma 30 mm f/2.8 EX DN. If I have to be honest I admit I was very surprised by that launch. In the case of the Micro 4/3 system a small sensor allows you to construct equally small and fast lenses so quite significant Sigma devices with f/2.8 aperture didn’t fit there at all.
  • Cons: a bit too high astigmatism,, noticeable chromatic aberration,, work against bright light should have been better.

Sigma 30 mm EX DN

6 April 2012
  • Summary: The Sigma 30 mm EX DN is a lens that is comfortable in the hand, finished solidly and which focuses quickly and quietly. For a micro-43 lens, the Sigma 30 mm EX DN is not very compact, but that is precisely an advantage for those who wish to focus manually. The resolution of this lens is very high, comparable to the resolution of the twice as expensive Panasonic 20 mm . This makes the Sigma 30 mm EX DN a welcome addition to the range of micro-43 lenses.
  • Pros: High resolution in the center, Solidly built and beautifully finished, Free pouch, Low priced
  • Cons: No built-in image stabilization, Reasonable performance in terms of distortion and chromatic aberration, Resolution in the corners is less than in the center
