The Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC HSM is a solid option for APS-C photographers who want a standard-angle prime with an f/1.4 aperture, but it's a little pricey compared with f/1.8 lenses.

  • +

    Compact. Opens to f/1.4. Very sharp when stopped down. 0.3-meter close focus. Sturdy build.

  • -

    Some edge softness at wide apertures. Modest barrel distortion. Lacks optical stabilization. Pricey.

Over the course of the past several pages, we've taken an in-depth look at the optical and mechanical performance of this compelling fast normal prime lens from Sigma.

  • +

    Fast F1.4 maximum aperture, Convenient focal length on APS-C, Beautiful bokeh, Excellent center sharpness, Compact and easy to hold, Minimal vignetting at F2 and above, Resistant to flare and ghosting, 4-year warranty (USA), Very affordable

  • -

    More distortion that we'd like to see in a premium prime, Purple fringing near edges/corners, Low contrast wide-open, Somewhat heavy given its size, Average corner sharpness, Not weather-sealed, Sluggish autofocus

Not exactly small - in fact it is chunky, especially compared to the Pentax 31mm f/1.8 competitor. But f/1.4 performance is quite respectable (and infinitely better than the Pentax 31mm), f/2 is excellent and on par in peak center contrast with the 31mm f/1.8 @ f/2 (though that one's got better...

    Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh

this lens is sharp when you can get it focused.... front focus is a major issue. i have to manually focus the lens in order to get it properly focused when at lower f stops

First let me say that I am a photography enthusiast, and that I am still improving my skills. I invested in a Canon T3i body about a year ago. I first bought the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 zoom lens.
