This large aperture 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM lens is designed to match the APS-C size image sensors of digital SLR cameras. Two SLD glass elements are especially effective in the compensation of magnification chromatic aberration. Glass mold aspherical lens at rear group of lens reduces color aberration and provides high-quality image results.

The HSM models provide quiet high-speed auto-focus shooting, as well as full-time manual focus.

After shooting some more with my lens, I noticed several instances (about 20%) of auto-focus misses. Reading a review of this lens on lenstip.com, I found out that auto-focus miss with this lens is known issue.
After a little more testing with this lens, I found that auto-focus is most consistent and accurate when the surface focus target is perpendicular to the center of the lens. When focusing on a target that is angled, AF accuracy gets thrown off and the lens tends to back focus. AF accuracy can also be thrown off when focusing on objects with smooth, curved or shiny surfaces.
When using a measuring tape to measure focus accuracy, make sure you don't focus directly on the measuring tape, which will be at an angle. Instead focus on a target that is at right angles with the lens. The measuring tape should be placed to the right or the left of the target.
I am attaching a link to a youtube video that explains how to properly measure focus accuracy using a measuring tape and a target. You will find the link in the Comments section.
I bought this lens for my Sigma SD15 DSLR, where it has an equivalent focal length of 51mm, thus making it a "standard" lens. (The Sigma SD15 system has a crop factor of 1.7. On the SD1 Merrill, which has a crop factor of 1.5, the equivalent focal length will be 45mm.)
It is reasonably sharp in the center wide open, and thus can be used for low light photography including portraits, albeit the depth of field is pretty narrow. It becomes tack sharp when stopping down to F2.8. On the SD15, the edge sharpness is also very good by F4.0. It can certainly be used for landscape photography when stopped down to F5.6, when the edge sharpness is almost as good as the center.
The bokeh in this lens is smooth and pleasing, although not quite as "buttery" as the bokeh on the Fuji XF 35mm F1.4 lens. The lens has good contrast and generally good control over lens flare. Having "only" 7 glass elements, I love the way this lens renders tonal nuances and micro-contrast.
Based on other reviews of Sigma 30mm F1.4 lens, it appears that there have been some bad copies of this lens. For example, some have experienced calibration issues resulting in a "back focus" or "front focus" problems. Thankfully the copy of the lens I received was calibrated perfectly, and I had no issues focusing accurately with it.
There is a caveat, though, that there is field curvature present with this lens. When focusing on an object in the center, off center objects will need to be slightly nearer to the camera than the plane of focus in order to achieve sharp focus. This is not an issue if one knows how to deal with it, including stopping down in group shots if necessary.
There is slight CA of the cyan/magenta variety, but this is easily corrected in post processing.
Overall this lens is able to deliver pretty stunning results on my SD15 camera.
But over the years, I've been really disappointed with Sigma's quality control and customer service.
Too bad Canon does not offer a 30 1.4 at this price. The bokeh quality on this lens is amazing but both of my Sigma 30 1.4 are having focusing issues. One is completely hopeless and the other is starting to back focus.
I'm not going to spend $200-$300 to repair a $400-$500 lens.
Also the customer service sucks. They take forever to respond and they never make any concessions or even give discounts.
And even after paying for repairs, I had focusing issues and I wasn't about to spend more time and money and deal with the hassle of Sigma's poor customer service.
Whenever I had issues with Canon lenses, they were so prompt.
Canon is really the Nordstrom of customer service.
So I've vowed never to buy Sigma lenses anymore.
And I used to be a fan. I bought 2 50 1.4, 2 30 1.4, 2 18-250.
What can I say, I love this thing. Many of my best wedding images and most cherished family portraits have come through this lens that over the last several years. I will note that more than a little paint has rubbed or chipped off over the last 3 years of use. Not enough to drop it a star in my opinion, but it's worth mentioning.
One nice thing is that for such great optics, this little lens is fairly lightweight. It doesn't feel "cheap", but it isn't a brick that makes your wrists & back sore either. It's a goto lens for me - kind of what I would hope the 50mm would be if it weren't so tight with the DX crop factor.
