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.
With the announcement of Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN, along with its sister Sigma 19mm f/2.8 EX DN, Sigma Corporation has finally made its long anticipated entrance into the mirrorless lens market official.
Sigma 30mm Micro Four Thirds Lens This 30mm lens is currently available to fit both Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX cameras and costs around £170. It sports a bright f/2.8 aperture and a newly developed linear focus motor.
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.

Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
The only thing that really surprised me about this lens is how small the front element lens; otherwise it's a basic accessory for most any lens toolkit; a fast prime. Bokeh is good and focus speed is fast, and ar 30mm it's the equivalent of 60mm on a full frame camera.
Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
I like it. I got in a hurry and bought the 30mm when I wanted the 60mm. I guess I just saw what I wanted to see when the 60mm was out of stock. However, it's not a bad lens. I bought mine used and tried it out right away. It's a 50mm equivalent and as such is a "normal" lens.
After making a complete switch from 4/3 to m4/3, the 14-42mk2 kit lens, though very good, just wasn't doing much for my creativity. A lot of m4/3 users will say that the Panasonic 20/1.7 is a must-have and similarly, the Olympus 45/1.8 is also a must-have, however, the former is too wide and the...
sharp lens - great for m4/3
