The Sigma 30 F1.4 DC DN | C is a great autofocus F1.4 option for Micro Four Thirds. While it doesn't take the top spot for sharpness, it offers good, consistent performance across the frame for much less price than the competition.

Given that Sony has been concentrating less on developing its APS-C lens line-up and more on augmenting its range of full-frame E-mount lenses, it is encouraging to see that Sigma has stepped up to the plate with an APS-C offering that’s hard to refuse: the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN.

This new Sigma lens is part of the Contemporary range. It offers a bright f/1.4 aperture and on Sony E mount APS-C format cameras offers a “35mm equivalent” of a short standard lens of 45mm. The MFT fit version offers the equivalent of a long standard lens of 60mm.

A relatively new lens from Sigma’s much-acclaimed Global Vision range, the 30mm f/1.4 prime offers exceptional optical quality, and is the cheapest autofocus lens in test . At a very respectable 264g and a compact 74mm, it falls into the portable category well and fits into any traveller’s kit bag...

When you compare the results achieved by the Sigma C 30 mm f/1.4 DC DN and the Panaleica DG Summilux 25 mm f/1.4 ASPH. it seems the Panasonic company chose the wrong address. Instead of luring customers with a logo of a fading legend they would have fared much better if they had struck a deal with...

Reasonable size and weight, excellent image quality, large f/1.4 aperture, superior build quality and a good price all mean that the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | C lens is worthy of the consideration of Sony E-mount users.

Should the new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN standard lens be top of the list for Micro Four Thirds and Sony E-mount users? Richard Sibley finds out.

The Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN C lens offers quite an unusual standard focal length of 45mm for APS-C compact system cameras and a slightly longer 60mm for Micro Four Thirds cameras. It offers acceptable sharpness wide-open at f/1.4 (at least in the centre), good build quality, nice bokeh and fast and...

I bought this lens because i wanted mid focal length on apsc camera; wider than 50mm and quality like the latest sigma. I also have sigma 18-35mm f1.8 which also gives the same performance at 30mm but it's too heavy and not practical to carry around.

  • +

    Very sharp. Excellent optics. Nice contrast. Works well on dual pixel AF. Fast AF. Smooth focus ring. Solid built. Comes with hood.

  • -

    A bit heavy than a 50mm nifty fifty. No in-body manual override. No IS.

An excellent prime lens giving sharp images throughout the aperture range. Well constructed with a feel of quality. For portraits or general photography it's a good substitute to the Canon ef-m 32mm f/1.4 stm lens.

29 January 2020

Fast, fast. Great auto-focus, reasonable size and weightThe lens produces excellent images - contrasty, good colours and excellent resolution. The f1.4 is its superpower, allowing for terrific foreground separation, unparalleled in APS-C. Believe the hype and it's a bargain.
