Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Overview

A sophisticated and compact prime, the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art is a versatile normal-length lens for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras. Featuring a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens excels in difficult lighting conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects using selective focus. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element, which helps to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to realize accurate subject rendering and high sharpness. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied to individual elements to suppress ghosting and flare for greater contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Complementing the optical assets, this lens also features a Hyper Sonic Motor, along with a rear focusing system, that affords especially quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override.

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
Normal-length prime is designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and provides a 45mm equivalent format.
Impressively bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
One aspherical element is used to help limit distortion and spherical aberrations and also contributes to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), along with a rear focus system, realizes quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. Additionally, a brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

This is a great lens at a fair price. I've only had it about a month but I'm glad I bought it. It's a great focal length and come on, it's a 1.4! I've been a long time fan of Sigma lenses. For me, Canon lenses have been hit or miss but my Sigmas never disappoint. Sure, I agree with reviews that say, 'hey stop it down for better sharpness' or there's some distortion at 1.4 or whatever. Still a total keeper of a lens.

Great for talking head videos and photos

Picked up this lens to do some talking head video for my youtube channel since this lens is very affordable. The bokeh is great where I get a lot of compliments when live streaming, people are more surprised when I tell them that the camera is a Canon T6i. Took the lens with me when I went to Sequoia National Park where it performed well. The lens also did great capturing Comet Neowise early in the morning. For a prime lens, this lens is very versatile as what it can do which makes it an amazing work horse.

Love this quality lens!

This lens is perfect for my D7100 in terms of a walking around lens. It's a low light wonder. This is my second Sigma Art lens and IMO, equal to, if not better than, the Nikkor lenses I have. Manufactured in Japan.

Only 1 flaw

Great lens but the only thing I don’t like about it is that the autofocus is too loud and you can hear it during videos.

Sharp wide open

Very sharp, even at wide open. Great, unique mm perspective for sure! Highly recommend the 30mm lens.

Fantastic lens

This lens is great for all around photography on an APS-C camera. A circular polarizing filter goes a long way for this lens in bright environments.

question

does this fit a canon rebel t3i?
Asked by: Kelani A.
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art lens is manufactured with a CANON mount that will fit CANON SLR. (t3i) ---arguably REBEL is most for the money as a series.

Sigma 30mm art or Nikon 50mm better?

Sigma 30mm art or Nikon 50mm better?
Asked by: Tech
Comparing a 30mm to a 50mm lens is a bit like comparing apples to oranges; 30mm is a wide-angle focal length, while 50mm is considered a "normal" focal length, so they are usually used for different purposes. The Sigma 30mm, however, is an APS-C lens, only compatible with crop-sensor cameras, while both the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 and 50mm f/1.8 are compatible with full-frame cameras and crop-sensor cameras. For this reason, the Nikon lenses are better optically, as well--full-frame lenses generally are better than crop-sensor lenses.
