Fully compatible with all Nikon Digital SLR cameras including the D40 and D40X, 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. From 40cm (15.7") minimum focusing distance to infinity, this lens creates very sharp images with high contrast. Large Maximum Aperture of F1.4 can perform superbly in a great range of applications, including snapshots, portraiture, indoor shooting and landscape photography. Please Note: Vignetting will occur if the lens is used with digital cameras with image sensors larger than APS-C size or 35mm SLR cameras.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I read lots of great reviews mixed with lots of not so great reviews for this lens. But for the price, I had to take the chance. (I bought this used here in mint condition from an Amazon seller.) Yes, it's true that the picture quality is somewhat "soft" and "fuzzy" wide open at 1.4. That was very obvious. BUT...like many of us have learned, it's much sharper closed down a bit from the largest aperture. I've taken some nice sharp shots at f/2, believe it or not.
Another common complaint was focus accuracy. Luckily, I haven't had that problem. I tested the lens for that as soon as I got it. I was hoping I didn't have to go through BUY, SELL, BUY, SELL, BUY before I found a good one. I got lucky. The focus accuracy has been absolutely fine. No issues in that regard.
To be honest, I haven't really spent enough time with this Sigma 30mm 1.4 to give a more comprehensive review, but I will say that it's SOLIDLY BUILT and the glass is very impressive. I'm very happy with this lens thus far.
1. This lens has an Amazing DOF - very narrow. At 1.4 this should be the case anyway. Don't know why one reviewer put it as a negative trait.
2. If you can focus properly (tripod helps at f1.4) - the center sharpness is amazing.
3. Construction is solid - much better than Canon 50mm f1.4 coupled with 4 year Sigma warranty
4. HSM pretty fast - as good as Canon AF
5. F1.4 means its great for low light conditions and pictures are pretty usable with some sharpening in PS come out great.
6. VFM not cheap - till Canon has a 28/30 f1.4 - effective 50mm on APS-C sensors at a competing price - this is always going to be a better choice.
7. Lastly great PQ - good contrast and great bokeh. Period.
1. Poor QC for lenses/maybe the reason put out by Sigma does hold true wrt variation of AF on DSLR bodies not being standardized. Anyway their customer service folks have heard of this problem and have a fix for it. Only if there was a better solution than shipping the lens with body to Sigma.
2. Can be difficult at f1.4 since DOF is narrow. This is both a pro and con - depends on the end user
3. Cant find any for the last two mins - Sigma could have included a coupon for ice cream along with the lens. The packing and box was good. (its not a con).
Pretty much to sum it up - its a good lens - great IQ and good contrast coupled with a VFM label means its always going to be a good seller. Can fall into the great category if Sigma can do something to address the focus issues. Overall a great buy for crop sensor cameras' provided you get a good copy/get is calibrated.
