As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
Normal-length prime is designed for APS-C-format Sony A-mount cameras and provides a 45mm equivalent format.
Impressively bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
One aspherical element is used to help limit distortion and spherical aberrations and also contributes to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), along with a rear focus system, realizes quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. Additionally, a brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

question

Is this lens compatible with Sony Nex-5N? Thanks
Asked by: Sergio A.
Unfortunately, no; the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sony is designed for use on the Sony A-mount/Minolta MAXXUM lens mount, not the Sony E-mount used on the Sony Alpha NEX-5N Digital Camera. The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E, B&H # SI3014DCDNS, and the more economical Sigma 30mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras (Black), B&H # SI3028DNSEB, would be the options that are directly compatible with the Sony E-mount used on the Sony Alpha NEX-5N Digital Camera. The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sony listed above would require an adapter to connect tto the Sony Alpha NEX-5N Digital Camera.

Will this lens work with Sony A7 series cameras?
Asked by: Xiao Bin Z.
A-Mount to E-Mount adapter... Last vertion of Sony Adapter is about: USD300.00. Best option: get the Sigma vertion and buy the Sigma Mount to Sony E-Mount or Canon vertion and get the convertor to Sony E-Mount... Easy!
