A truly versatile standard prime, this 30mm lens is designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras where it provides a 45mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords greater focus control for producing shallow depth of field effects.
One aspherical element and one double-sided aspherical element control a range of spherical aberrations and distortions for increased sharpness and resolution. Additionally, a high-refractive index, high-dispersion glass element is also integrated into the design, and offers anomalous partial dispersion characteristics to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing.
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.
A stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance.
A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. The outside of the lens barrel is also engraved with the year of production.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability.

    Sigma 30mm f/1.4 reviews

    30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 129.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sigma does it again I want to start off by saying I was really happy about B&H notifying me when the lens was ready. It really is a great system and I had my lens the next day. I really can't say enough about this lens. It's light weight, fast and insanely sharp! It's a perfect fit for my a6000 and will likely live on my camera. Full autofocus capability (the 2.8 version only allowed for PDA in the center), eye autofocus works! My only complaint, and it's not much of a complaint really is that it does not come with the padded case that other sigma lenses do. No big deal really because I've yet to take it off of my camera. Hoping for sigma to make an 85mm version!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish there were more like this. I love this lens. It allows my APS-C body to look/feel like a full frame without the full frame price or size. Photos are awesome. I would really like this lens at 20mm, but none exists. I wish there was a lens like this (1.4) at 80mm, but there are none. The only downside is the annoying focus by wire behavior. I am always passing the focus point because I am pulling too slow/fast. It does have auto focus, but often I like to manually focus and this lens is annoying for that. I'll excuse that since everything else about this lens is awesome including the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hmm, very nice... Great, sharp versatile lens. Lots of fun to use. Great, useful focal length (a reviewer someplace said odd focal length) -- well it's great for just about anything, walk-around, street photography, portraits, or candid snaps, and sharp enough to get a good crop if you didn't bring your mid-range tele. I have almost every Sony E lens. At the moment, if I had to have just one with me, I think it would have to be this -- for sheer versatility. Found it to be sharp to ridiculous. (A reviewer said 1.4 is low resolution. Had to go back to lightroom to see. Nope, sharp at 1.4, you just gotta watch that razor thin focal plane). If you're starting out with a new A6300, don't bother with the kit lens, get this instead -- no question. Nice job, Sigma!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright and sharp, a welcome addition to my kit. I shoot with a Sony 6300 when I'm doing location shooting of musicians or events. I've only used this lens on two occasions, as it just arrived last week, but I can tell immediately that it's going to fill in the much used mid-range in my lens collection. I shoot with the Touit 12/2.8, Sony 28/2, Sony 55/1.8, Zeiss 85/1.8, and the Sony 16-105/4. As the fastest lens in that group, I reach for it when things are dim, and it doesn't disappoint. Why only four stars? Well, I always check the reviews before a major purchase, and this lens may have issues with sharpness in the corners, flatness of field, and distortion. I'm not shooting landscape or architecture, so for my purposes, at this price, it's a peach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens I had the 30 mm f2.8 lens and was satisfied with it until I read all the reviews that I could about the 30mm F1.4. Now I am hooked on it. It is very sharp. In general all of the Sigma products for Sony s6000 are excellent plus. Very sharp, compact, and a steal economically. I wish that they would make more products for the Sony E. On the Sony a6000 they are a 45mm. An excellent replacement for any other 50mm lens. I also have the Sigma 60mm f/2.8 and it also is a super sharp lens. On the a6000 they give a 90mm picture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile little lens Bought this for my A6500 and it's been my go-to for over 6 months now. Pretty sharp, versatile focal length, fast aperture, small size, silent auto-focus, and suitable for videos and photos. One major downside would be its focus-by-wire manual focus system. It focuses depending on how fast the user's hand turns it and it's not precise for run and gun situations. I just leave it on autofocus, and thankfully the Sony's AF is as good as it is. Anyone looking to use the manual focus on this lens should consider a different lens without focus-by-wire.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb If you are in any doubt just get it. I've had the 50mm primes for Nikon and 50mm for Sony e mount and wanted something with a more 'natural' focal length. Great indoors, wide enough for landscapes and street, great for portraits and pretty good for astrophotography too! The 1.4 makes it awesome indoors and it focuses very fast with the Sony Alpha series. Couldn't be happier. You could slap a ziess sticker on here and do a blind test and I'd challenge you to notice the difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sigma 30mm E Mount I sold all of my Sony a6000 kit lens, replacing them with a Sony 18-105 G lens and the Sigma 30mm. I take pictures at many events where the lighting is low and I can't use a flash. The Sigma 30mm is awesome for group shots under low light conditions. It is also superb for panoramic shots and outdoor night shots. With many lens you are unable to frame your shot due to low light conditions, but with this lens that is not a problem.
