BH #SI3014DCDNS • MFR #302965
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens (Sony E)
Key Features
  • APS-C | f/1.4 to f/16
  • 45mm (Full-Frame Equivalent)
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
  • Stepping Motor AF System
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 reduces 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. A rubber sealing at the lens mount helps protect against dust and other elements entering the lens or camera.

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).
