Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary Micro Four Thirds Lens Review

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: The Sigma 30 F1.4 DC DN | C is a great autofocus F1.4 option for Micro Four Thirds. While it doesn't take the top spot for sharpness, it offers good, consistent performance across the frame for much less price than the competition.
Pros: 
  • Portraits, subjects needing shallow depth of field
Cons: 
  • The field of view is a bit too narrow to be a do-it-all prime

Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary is a bright, crisp, standard-angle lens for Sony and Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras.
While f/1.4 lenses are readily available for SLR systems, they're not as plentiful for mirrorless cameras, especially those that use smaller than full-frame sensors. The Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary ($339) is a compact, bright, standard-angle lens, available for both Sony APS-C and Micro Four Thirds camera systems. It's a strong performer, capturing crisp photos and delivering strong control over depth of field. Design The 30mm F1.4 ($309.00 at Amazon) is fairly compact for an f/1.4 design. It measures 2.9 by 2.6 inches (HD), weighs just 9.4 ounces, and supports 52mm front filters. The barrel is a mix of metal and polycarbonate, but unlike the wider, pricier Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary, the lens is not sealed to protect entry of dust and moisture. You can buy the lens in an E-mount version for Sony cameras with APS-C sensors, or for Micro Four Thirds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic. The APS-C sensor is larger, so the lens acts like a 45mm full-fame lens when paire...
Pros: 
  • Bright aperture
  • Very sharp
  • Even illumination
  • Affordable
Cons: 
  • Some barrel distortion
  • Omits stabilization
  • Not weather-sealed
