This lens is a must. I've been using in my Sony a7iii even tho it's designed for APS cameras. The image quality is amazing. I'm overwhelmed at it.

Great Lens! I paired it with the canon M200 and it yields great results! I love the way it blurs the background!

Sharp, Smooth & Creamy

After hours of review videos and forum following I decided to jump on the Sigma 30mm for the EF-M Mount. This lens offers amazing detail on the Canon M50 Mark II with a deliciously creamy bokeh. The prime lens offerings from Sigma produce elite renderings of the world around you at an unbeatable price and I would highly recommend this lens to anyone looking to advance their image quality without breaking the bank. The lens is on the heavier side when mounted on my M50, but still isn't cumbersome for day hiking with the camera. In the future I will definitely be looking to pick up the other Sigma prime lenses for the EF-M mount.

Very sharp lens with great bokeh, AF is blah

I incredibly sharp lens, fast, with great bokeh. Only wish the autofocus was better. Tends to search too much. I noticed it on two different Sony bodies. Kinda want to take those GM's on a date. Shhh.

Makes me look good

Being brand new to photography, I didn't want to spend $1000.00 on a new lens just to find out that it doesn't make me any better. HOWEVER, what I found, is that for me, this prime lens is exactly what I needed! This lens completely changed my thoughts on photography, it is light and airy, as well as being fairly compact on my camera (Fujifilm X-S10). I have been using it for portraits with a great background, have even received quite a few compliments on my recent photography adventures! Moral of the story, I would HIGHLY recommend this lens. I would love to try the fujifilm 35mm F/1.4 to compare!

First Rate Optics

There are a lot of budget lenses with optical compromises and reviewers tend to focus on the price and minimize the defects. The Sigma 30mm f1.4 has spectacular MTF numbers, very small amounts of distortion, and all around profession level optical properties that outclasses lenses costing 5-6 times more. This is the best performance/cost glass that I have ever owned. I have been a photographer for 50 years and in my work use research-grade microscopes.

What size lens cap is needed for the front of this lens? (Sigma 30, 1.4) I lost mine and I’m not sure what size to get. Thank you!
Asked by: Amy
As a rule, you'll want a lens cap that is the same size as a filter for the lens, in this case, 52mm.

Is it a glass constructed lens or a "plastic"? Or both, may be? Thank you.
Asked by: george
Construction includes plastic. Build quality between the Sigma and the Sony is fairly similar. They both use a machined metal chassis with plastic internals. Compared to older Sigma DN lenses, the 30mm F1.4 doesn't let its focus elements rattle about when unmounted, which is a very welcome change. The focus ring is also an improvement, and a step above the Sony. The rubber grip turns smoothly and easily with minimal effort, making the Sony feel a bit stiff. The only downfall in terms of build is the Sigma's lens hood, which doesn't seem to confidently click in to place, and is made of rather fragile feeling plastic.

question

According to some reviews, CA is very strong in this lens, can anybody check this?
Asked by: Anonymous
LOCA is strong wide open, not unlike other f/1.4 lenses. It's reduced as you close the aperture, but still can be visible on high contrast edges (I can see it in the tree branches against the sky).
