The Sony DT 30mm f/2.8 Macro SAM offers genuine 1:1 macro capability at a price that won't break the bank

Overall, this is a very interesting lens, especially when its price is taken into consideration. It offers a macro solution that is capable of producing images of very good quality, so long as it is used within its limitations.

    Lightweight, Compact, Capable of very good results, Excellent value for money

  • -

    Short working distance can be a challenge to work around, Barrel distortion, Chromatic aberrations may be visible in high contrast images

The Sony 30mm f/2.8 DT macro ( SAL-30F28 ) shines in many aspects. Like most dedicated macro lenses it is extremely sharp straight from f/2.8 till about f/11 and even f/16 can be considered as a mainstream setting.

Available for under �160, is Sony's 30mm macro lens the perfect macro lens for photographers on a budget?

I have a special purpose for my new 30mm lens: 7,000 slides waiting to be digitized. Scanning takes over two minutes per slide, a real bummer. But this lens on my Sony A77, attached to the Nikon ES-1 slide copier makes a beautiful high-resolution digital copy in seconds!

I have used this twice since I purchased it, and both times I have been impressed with the sharp results I have achieved. I have only hand held it during this test period, and even then it has performed very well. I love the depth of field. I would definitely recommend this for anyone's camera bag.

I had been in the market for a macro lens when I found this little beauty. For such a low price, I was blown away by the quality of the images it was giving me. I've used it for everything from portraits to landscapes to macro. It's rarely been taken off my camera since I've gotten it!

Can't beat the price for the image quality. Beautifully sharp detail and strong bokeh. Good for portraits and macro, but you'll have to be right up on the material for the 1:1

    Cheap, quality, sharp, smooth focus, quiet

  • -

    Shallow depth of field (could be pro though)

A good lens. I don't mind the plastic body, it's lightweight but feels good quality. Only problem I had was that the depth of field is very short. I had to fully close the aperture (f22) to get a good depth of field, which of course makes exposure difficult.
