This line of lenses is fantastic, I use it with my Sony a6000 and it really lets the hardware shine vs the stock lenses that came with the body. Pictures are much clearer and better in my typical low light shooting. What a difference!

Best bang for your buck!

I own a Sony a6000 and this lens is the one of the most popular upgrades from the kit lens for a reason. I purchased this lens for its great low light photography and video. I also read alot of reviews saying the sharpness was great but wow did it really blow me away after i saw the difference. Definitely happy with this purchase!

This is such a great must have lens in your kit. It's lightweight, (compared to the 16mm) small, and takes excellent crisp sharp images/video. And it's a fast lens 1.4 so its very versatile. This would be your nifty fifty on a crop sensor. Very happy with this lens, and is a compliment to the 16mm. I don't own the 56mm so I cant compare with that.

Great lens with unusual focal

By Jason

I bought this lense shortly after getting the Sigma DC DN 56mm 1.4 which is a fantastic lens with a 35mm equivalent field of view of 112 mm. I have always loved shooting with 100mm and 135mm prime lenses. This is for the MFT version. I personally find the 50mm focal length a bit boring and prefer shooting with something either a bit wider like 35-40 mm or in this case 60mm. I find this is better for portraits and candids. The lens is very sharp wide open. Pretty large for MFT but not heavy. I am surprised it is a bit bigger than the Sigma 56mm 1.4. I just wish the lens was weathersealed.

Asked by: Manisha
No, it will not. The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Micro Four Thirds, B&H # SI3014DCDNM, is designed for use on cameras that use the Micro Four Thirds lens mount. If you are looking for a Sigma 30mm lens for the Canon EF lens mount, the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon, B&H # SI3014DCHSMC, would work for your usage needs, while the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon EF, B&H # SI3514C, would be a slightly less wide option that would also work for your usage needs.

does this lens good for cinema 4k video like samyang cine and meike cine?
Asked by: shine
The lens is sharp and can be used for video and 4k. There are better cine lenses. Most cine lenses are manual and the better ones have de-clicked aperture. So, you can change it smoothly. It really depends on how you will be showing the video, camera model and what you are shooting.

question

What is the T-Stop value?
Asked by: Ollie L.
This isnt a specification that Sigma offers for their lenses, at least that I have seen. That being said, looking at third party testing, the max transmission for the lens in terms of TStop would be 3.1.

question

Is there a lens firmware version higher than 1.1 for the Micro Four Thirds mount? Sigma released a statement that older lenses don't correct the distortion when shooting JPEG; Newer versions should have a yellow sticker on the box. I want to be sure I have the latest version (Mine says 1.1)
Asked by: Anonymous
There is at least one newer firmware update than 1.1 we were able to find via Sigma's website (v. 1.2). Please contact Sigma for more information on their current or previous updates and if you need any additional technical support.
