Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN Review

What Digital Camera
19 February 2013
  • 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.

22 May 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.

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

Expert Review

26 March 2012
  • Summary: Warte podkreślenia jest podobieństwo osiągów Sigmy 2.8/30 do Sigmy 1.4/30. Z pozoru to zupełnie różne obiektywy, które łączy tylko producent i uzyskiwany kąt widzenia. Mamy przecież zupełnie różne światło, inne gabaryty, inną odległość obrazową i inną konstrukcję optyczną.
  • Pros: zwarta i dość solidna obudowa,, świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, przyzwoita jakość obrazu na brzegu matrycy Mikro 4/3,, niewielka dystorsja,, dobrze korygowana koma,, umiarkowane winietowanie,, cichy, szybki i celny autofokus,, dobry stosunek jakości do ceny.
  • Cons: trochę za duży astygmatyzm,, zauważalna aberracja chromatyczna,, praca pod ostre światło mogłaby być lepsza.
