Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN Review

What Digital Camera
12 June 2012
  • Summary: Clearly this is a lens of contradictions: it has a poor manual-focusing facility but it has a brisk and reliable AF system that records bitingly sharp images. It is also very well priced, which is an added bonus.

Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN First Look Review

11 April 2012
  • 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.

21 April 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Cons: a bit too high astigmatism,, noticeable chromatic aberration,, work against bright light should have been better.

  • Excerpt: De Sigma 30 mm DN ('Digital Neo') verscheen in het eerste kwartaal van 2012 op de markt. Terwijl Sigma er snel bij was bij de introductie van het Four Thirds systeem, heeft het lang geduurd voordat er Sigma lenzen voor micro-43 te koop zijn.
  • Pros: Hoge resolutie in het centrum, Degelijke gebouwd en mooi afgewerkt, Gratis etui, Laag geprijsd
  • Cons: Geen ingebouwde beeldstabilisatie, Redelijke prestaties qua vervorming en chromatische aberratie, Scherpte in de hoeken minder dan in centrum

  • Summary: Lornetki z serii Action EX to modele, które w ciemno można polecać początkującym. Jeśli ktoś pyta o lornetkę do 300 zł nie sugeruję mu zakupu żadnych Actionów VII czy też Aculonów lecz polecam zwiększyć budżet o 100-200 zł i zainteresować się którąś lornetką z serii Action EX.
  • Pros: zwarty i solidny korpus,, rozsądnie korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, niewielki astygmatyzm,, znikoma dystorsja,, niewielkie pociemnienie obrazu na brzegu pola,, spore pole widzenia,, dobrej klasy pryzmaty ze szkła BaK-4,, okrągłe źrenice wyjściowe,, czysto i ciemno wewnątrz tubusów.
  • Cons: przeciętna transmisja,, duża koma,, wyraźny spadek ostrości na brzegu pola widzenia,, brak powłok na jednej granicy powietrze-szkło w obiektywie,, pole widzenia trochę mniejsze od deklarowanego.
