30mm F1.4 DC HSM | A
Unlike Any Other Prime
Placed under the Art category, this large-aperture standard lens with an angle of view equivalent to 45mm on a 35mm camera is a superb go-to lens for artistic photography on an APS-C format digital SLR. Offering the bright F1.4 aperture and an angle of view extremely close to that of human vision, this lens is ideal for many different types of photography. Equipped with the latest in lens technology, the 30mm 1.4 lens boasts a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), Super Multi-Layer Coating and a design featuring Thermally Stable Composite Material (TSC). The HSM ensures quiet, accurate and high-speed autofocus; the Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting, while the TSC reduces expansion and contraction of the internal lens barrel. A rear focus system prevents focus-dependent variation in aberration, making high-level image quality possible throughout the entire image. With their unchanging barrel length, these lenses also enhance balance and stability for the photographer. An optimized autofocus achieves a smoother focusing. The 30mm 1.4 has a minimum focusing distance of 11.8in and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.8. A 9 blade rounded diaphragm creates beautiful bokeh. Under the Global Vision standard, every lens will be tested before shipping using the Sigma A1 MTF system to ensure the highest degree of quality possible.

SIGMA 30MM LENS CANON F1.4 ART DC HSM LENS
Top customer reviews
This has pretty much the same review as the original, some people saying it focuses good and others saying it doesn't. I guess that was the main issue. Upon opening the box, this new Art version looks much better than the first and quality is much much better as well. It is a little heavier, however it is a beauty. The focus ring is much smoother than the first. Overall much much better quality.
Again, I mainly focus manually because I take mostly videos, but there are days when I do like to take photos. In bright light I have no problem auto-focusing, when it gets darker it's a hit and miss, which isn't good because this fast lens is supposed to excel in low-light. I haven't tried micro-adjusting the lens, will try that later, but as of now it's a hit and miss in low light. For videos this is perfect, focus ring is smooth and bokeh is nice. No problem for videos.
Things it comes with are lens pouch, front and back lens cap and lens hood. (This is what I like about Sigma) Back lens cap is wider than the canon, and will not tip over easily. Front lens cap, has the pinch style which is perfect if you have the lens hood on. Lens hood is round, like the canon 50mm 1.4. I prefer the old Sigma 30mm Lens Hood, it was the petal looking one, much better looking.
Even if mines has auto-focusing issue in low-light I have no problem because I will try micro-adjusting it. If that doesn't work there is always the Sigma warranty and they can fix it, so no worries there. (Just have to wait) For videos however, I really like the smooth focus and bokeh.
4 out of 5 because it is an awesome quality built lens. Much better than anything in its price range. Picture quality is great and videos are great as well. Main issue is auto-focusing, which I hope can be fix by micro-adjusting it. The pouch and lens hood are a plus.
I can achieve beautiful Bokeh when desired and I can get great indoor pictures when necessary.
What drives me nuts though is that the Autofocus seems to hunt, CONSTANTLY even when on a tripod. If I don't do a really good job manually focusing the subject first, the lens will never AF it. Either I'm just not experienced to enough to understand why, or there is a problem with the lens.
For the record I'm using it with the a Rebel T5i. Unknown to me, even though the lens seems to claim to have a physical EF mount, apparently, firmware prevents it from working with anything but a EF-S mount. Regardless, when I upgrade to a full frame camera, I'll be selling this one anyway.
Even though the lens itself has a very wide aperture at f1.4, it’s definitely not what I’d describe as a big lens. But it definitely does feel great.
There a few really nice features to it as well. Firstly, we’ve got a metal mount on the back and on the top here, we’ve got a focus distance window which is good for manually focusing. The focus ring on the front however has never been as smooth as I would have liked. It feels a little gritty and rough, but it does a fairly long focus throw.
So overall the build quality is great. I’ve used the 30mm lens for about 4 years now and they’ve really stood the test of time.
On a crop sensor body like this Canon t3i here, 30mm equates to about 50mm, which is commonly called a normal focal length.
And it’s become one of my favorite focal lengths.It’s not super wide, but also, not a tele lens.
As with almost any 1.4 lens, one of the best things about htem is that it’s super easy to get some lovely bokeh.
And that’s no different than with this little Sigma. At f1.4 this lens produces an incredibly shallow depth of field. The bokeh is lovely as well and it really does allow you to take creative control of your shot.
As I said before, I’ve been using this to film all of my videos here on youtube for nearly two years ago, and as you can see, it really allowed me to seperate myself from the background in my shots.
The Sigma 30mm 1.4 has a minimum focus distance over 40cm, which is actually pretty far away, so don’t expect any ultra close ups with this lens.
This is definitely not a macro lens, but it can see provide some nice photos of small objects, simply because it has a very shallow depth of field which allows great sepeartion.
Unfortruanly one area where the Sigma 30mm 1.4 is let down is in autofocus.
It’s not the worst performer but it does struggle to lock on to it's target every time. In low light i pretty much only use manual focus with this lens because it struggles quite a lot.
But in broad daylight it’s not too bad especially if you knock it down to around f2.8 or so.
Funnily enough though, this lens performs excellently in autofocus for video.
Paired up with my Canon 70d, autofucs is really consistent even at wide apertures. I use face tracking autofocus for most of my videos with thes lens and it works 98% of the time. And it also allows me to do some great focus pulls on these lenses that I do in all of my videos.
Like I said before, you can really get some great dreamy photos with this lens. Having that lovely normal view and shallow deptb of field makes it a great lens for portraits and street photography.
It's not the sharpest lens I own, and there are some chroamtiv abberations for sure, but it’s still a fantastic performer.
