A fast, versatile prime, this 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens from Sigma is designed for use with APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. The bright f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords extensive control over depth of field for using selective focus techniques. The optical design features a pair of aspherical elements, along with one high-refractive index element, which significantly reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for increased clarity and definition for notably sharp image quality. Also, a Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to control lens flare and ghosting in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, benefitting both stills shooting and video recording, this compact prime also incorporates a stepping AF motor for smooth, near-silent autofocus performance.
- E-Mount Lens/APS-C Format

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Reviews
sharp lens for both video and still photography
This lens is awesome. It gives all the bokeh you could want and then some (it's too much sometimes, and I don't use the maxed-out 1.4 as often as I thought I would). Besides that, it creates incredibly sharp images and amazing depth in colors and blacks. I will definitely be purchasing the 16mm and 56mm variants of this lens as well, but if you're going to get one of them, get this one first! It's incredibly versatile and the best bang for the buck.
Sharp as advertised.
Great lens with unusual focal
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.
This is the first prime I have owned and I have been blown away by how sharp this thing is. Low light handling has also been amazing. for the price to try out a prime I am in love.
Lens unlocks my camera's poten
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!
Excellent budget lens
Very nifty little lens with great autofocus time, and its nearly silent while doing so. a tiny bit of fringing at f 1.4, but that basically goes away when you set it lower.
Got some great flower pics
Nice and sharp. Got some really good background blurring a f1.4
