The 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sony from Sigma is a prime lens designed for Sony APS-C format cameras. Its 35mm focal length equivalent is 45mm which places it in the category of standard focal length lenses. With its particularly fast maximum aperture of f/1.4, the lens will perform very well in low light situations and provides shallow depth of field focus. With updated optical configurations (9 elements in 8 groups), as well as rounded aperture blades, the lens delivers sharp detail and nice background bokeh. Its minimum focus distance is 11.8" (30 cm).

The lens’ optimized light distribution helps to minimize field curvature preventing a loss of image quality at the edges of photographs and its double-sided aspherical lens element minimizes spherical distortion. A rear focusing system combined with a newly developed autofocus algorithm and Hyper Sonic Motor provide smooth and accurate autofocus. Fulltime manual focus is also supported. 

Fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 allows fast shutter speeds for clear low-light imaging and shallow depth of field focus.
A Hyper Sonic Autofocus Motor (HSM) offers fast, smooth and quiet autofocus.
Constructed with Thermally Stable Composite Material (TSC) which performs well in extreme temperatures, reducing the expansion and contraction of the internal lens barrel.

          Comments about Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sony:

          I wanted one real fast "50mm" eq lens and it got it. Build solid and feel good in your hand. Great pictures with my Sony A77 and A77ii. I love using it. Well done Sigma, high value for the price.

          Comments about Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sony:

          After getting tired of the expensive and low aperture of the Sony E-Mounts, I decided to start my migration to SLT. I am using this on a Sony NEX-7 with LA-EA2 adapter, which makes the mirrorless camera look like a beast.

          As a beginner in photography I had found this lens difficult to use at first, however after a good week of use and experimentation I have learned from it and now can say that I am getting sharp images when stopped down and smooth bokeh when wide open. It shows CA at F/1.4 but that goes away at F/2.8, and even at that aperture, the bokeh is still smooth.

          I really can't wait till spring gets warmer so I can take this out for some nature and street shoots.

          Build quality is solid. I love the feel, the coldness of the metal parts.

          I would have to mention, the autofocus does not work with the LA-EA1, it's just hunts and hunts. You can manually focus however. The camera did disable the DMF function when this lens is attached, but it still maintains the focus peaking feature.

            Comments about Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sony:

            This is my go-to lens. I have had it for just a few days but I love it. Spectacular - amazing. Great sharpness and very pleasing Bokeh. The construction is very sold but the lens is not too heavy. I like this lens much ore than the Sigma 35mm Art lens, which I found to be soft and slow to focus, especially in low light. This lens turned in a great performance on both my A77 and A65. This is a huge step forward over the older 30mm version.
