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
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!
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.
A good lens for the Money
I've been using this lens for shooting still images of vehicles in car and motorcycle shows. I'm getting more familiar with this focal length in an ASPC application where I had previously used an 18-105 Zoom and it has definite benefits shooting in lower light applications. I have found it difficult to use the supplied hood and an ND filter concurrently.
Really nice lens
Great Lens Especially For Low Light + Indoor + Mirror Selfie
I bought this lens for gym mirror selfies because the lighting in my gym is really bad, and I needed a wide open f-stop. The f/1.4 setting with autofocus works great in a mirror. The 30mm focal length is also great for an indoor setting. You don't have to get too far away from your subject for a full body shot, and it's not so wide that it's capturing other people. This significantly reduced the ISO and noise I had to get the same exposure with my Fuji zoom kit lens where the f-stop was ~3.4 with the same focal length.
Went to Road Atlanta this weekend and it worked flawlessly. Sigma's Contemporary lineup is a must for Sony APS-C users. The proof is in the pudding.
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!
Superior lens, good price/quality ratio
