Sigma 30mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon from Sigma is a prime lens designed for Canon APS-C format cameras. Its 35mm focal length equivalent is 45mm which places it in the category of standard focal length lenses. With its particularly fast maximum aperture of f/1.4, the lens will perform very well in low light situations and provides shallow depth of field focus. With updated optical configurations (9 elements in 8 groups), as well as rounded aperture blades, the lens delivers sharp detail and nice background bokeh. Its minimum focus distance is 11.8" (30 cm).

The lens’ optimized light distribution helps to minimize field curvature preventing a loss of image quality at the edges of photographs and its double-sided aspherical lens element minimizes spherical distortion. A rear focusing system combined with a newly developed autofocus algorithm and Hyper Sonic Motor provide smooth and accurate autofocus. Fulltime manual focus is also supported. As part of Sigma's "Art" line of lenses it is compatible with Sigma's USB Dock, which enables firmware updates and focusing adjustments.

Fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 allows fast shutter speeds for clear low-light imaging and shallow depth of field focus.
A Hyper Sonic Autofocus Motor (HSM) offers fast, smooth and quiet autofocus.
Constructed with Thermally Stable Composite Material (TSC) which performs well in extreme temperatures, reducing the expansion and contraction of the internal lens barrel.
As part of Sigma's "Art" line of lenses it is compatible with Sigma's USB Dock, which enables firmware updates and focusing adjustments.

    Sigma 30mm f/1.4 reviews

    30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Higher quality, and sharper I owned both the EX DC and this art lens. I haven't had much time to play around with the new lens, but so far, I have noticed some differences. 1) The build quality feels superior, the focus ring is much smoother (which I love) 2) I believe (though I'm no expert) that this lens is sharper than its predecessor. The color fringing wide open (F/1.4) seems like it has been improved upon. 3) The glass diameter has been drastically decreased. I think aesthetically not as pleasing, but possibly has physical benefits with better glass. 4) Focusing is much the same (I don't know what kind of focusing problems will come about, but I have had none so far), it is very fast and quiet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-To Lens for video, prep shots. While there may not be a perfect lens in the world, the combination of features and price make this 30mm come darn close! Having shot with the predecessor to this iteration of Sigma's 30mm f/1.4 I had a good idea of what to expect, though I've been thrilled with the improvements in build quality with this version. Metallic body and noticeably smoother focus ring make this lens a joy to shoot with. Auto Focus is acceptably fast and quiet, no issues there, though I'm frankly more of a manual focus puller... Pair this lens with a decent body, monopod/tripod, and maybe an ND filter for some real outdoor action, and you've got a pretty powerful photo/video tool.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this lens I was looking for a wider angle lens to replace my Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. After reading review after review and comparing the Sigma 30mm to the Canon 35mm 2.0 and 28mm 1.8, I settled on this lens. The focal length on this lens is perfect for photographing in small spaces and the bokeh is stunning. The other canon lenses mentioned above do not even compare when it comes to bokeh. The one downfall of this lens is that it does have a hard time getting sharp images in low light, but the Canons 28m and 35mm were not much better. I love this lens and all that I am able to capture with it! This lens is built solid too. Even the canon 35mm (for $) felt like a toy compared to this lens!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Deal I got to use this lens for a short while. I love Sigma's new design of their lenses. Very slick and clean looking. I've never used the predecessor to this so I have no comment on that subject. Pros: Light and small packing a large aperture. A very reasonable 30mm. Excellent bokeh. Looks pretty sharp wide open. Cons: Still a significant bit of color fringing wide open. Even stopped down it's clearly present at 100% but not as bad. Not to worry too much since post can remove a lot of it. Side note: I used this on my 5D Mark III. It may say EF-S but it will mount up to a full frame camera and work fine. There is no significant vignetting either. As far as DOF goes. Don't fret, since it's 30mm even wide open you still have good working room. At 4ft/1.2m subject distance you have a 3.3in/8.5cm DOF. At 8ft/2.4m subject distance you have a 1.16ft/35cm DOF.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Money, 100% I currently shoot on a Canon T1i, and what I've always learned is to invest in the glass before the body. This was the perfect option for a crop sensor photographer like myself, and right out of the box I loved this lens! The autofocus is fast and super super quiet. It's heavy, but that doesn't change my opinion one bit about this lens. It's a great step for people who are wanting to get a prime lens that will do more than what the Canon 50mm 1.8 will do or the kit lens. If you are on the border of weather or not to get the lens, GET IT!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Work I like to travel light, but my first priority is image quality. I found this lens to be the ultimate compromise with 30mm probably being just about right for general (non-sports, wildlife, etc.) photography with the added benefit of the large aperture. So far I haven't found the need for wider and my next focal length is 100mm. No third-party issues whatsoever.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Raises the value of your crop sensor Last year I made the switch to full frame and parked Sigma's 50mm F1.4 Art lens on my 5Diii. I thought full frame was the most amazing thing, and I could never go back. Then I started doing a little bit of video work, so I dusted off my SL1 to use as camera 2. When the SL1 was my only camera, I used an EF 50mm F1.8, EF-S 24mm F2.8, EF 75-300mm, and EF-S 10-18mm. I had always heard that lenses were more important than the body, but I never got myself to buy expensive lenses until after I had an expensive body. This lens is an expensive lens that isn't expensive. For the first video session I had a Canon EF-S 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 on the SL1 and the 50mm on the 5Diii. The footage from the SL1 was noisy garbage in comparison to the 5D. I needed to get that ISO down. I then looked into Sigma's 24mm F1.4 Art lens to fix this problem, but I found the much smaller, lighter, and cheaper 30mm F1.4... The footage was remarkable. The difference next to the footage from the 5Diii was negligible. Since then I've been using my SL1 more often than my 5Diii. The setup is less than half the weight, roughly half the size, 1/4 the price, and 9/10 the image quality (for what I'm doing, anyways). For day to day use and for travel, this lens has been worth every penny. It's made me pick up an old body that was previously collecting dust. If I'm actually doing a shoot, though, I still try (and try and try and try) to get my money's worth out of the 5Diii. AF clicks during video, and lens has a little CA sometimes, otherwise it would get 5 stars from me. Build quality is amazing, solid, clean. It's not a huge lens (like Sigma's 50mm F1.4) which is great. Any time I talk to a friend wanting to switch to full frame, I recommend this lens first.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic with the 7D I bought this lense because I wanted to achieve smooth bokeh for portraits and something that would give me an edge in low light, well, aIl can say is that it performs amazingly! This is now my daily lense in place of the Canon 1.8 which doesn't even come close. Yes there is slight chromatic aberration under bright light but nothing that can't be fixed quickly in PS or by dropping down the aperture to f1.8/2.0. I will say that I am being picky when I say that as only an experienced photographer will pick up on it when scrutinising their own images. Using it with the APS-C cropped sensor on the 7D makes it the equivalent to a full frame at 48mm (30mm X 1.6) but also reduces the amount of vignette visible. The lense has a very solid well built feel about it and is also very compact and light compared to the full frame equivalent. The motor and focussing is quiet, fast and sharp which also makes it ideal if you want something to use for videography. So far, so good, well done and thank you Sigma.....your turn Canon!
