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.

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.

I’m looking into buying the Sony A6600 later on in the year. So my question on lenses or rather on this one in particular, is would be better to pick this one up over the Sony 35mm F1.8 OSS? I mostly do videography, primarily for music videos, Wedding, Real estate amongst other things. As for photography, I primarily do, portraits, landscape, cityscape, weddings, concert photos. Amongst other things. Not sure if that helps with determining on witch one to buy.
Asked by: ValorFlame
Since the a6600 has IBIS I would pick the sigma. It is a little bit sharper, and a little wider. The bad side is that autofocus in video is not as reliable as sony`s, and manual focusing is very hard with the sigma.
