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
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.
The close minimum focusing distance gives this lens some respectable macro capabilities. It may be a strange focal length but I have been using it as my primary walk around lens for a while now. Personally, I'd say that you should give this lens a shot - you may just fall in love with it. :)
(Note that it does have some green and purple color fringining that is noticeable on the out of focus bits but this is easily correctable in post.)
