Sigma 30mm f1.4: My most loved crop sensor lens

Firstly, let me tell you that this lens is an absolute all around, especially if you’re a crop Sony E-mount shooter. The Sigma 30mm f1.4 is a prime lens that is designed for APS-C format cameras and provides an equivalent focal length of 45mm on a full-frame camera. Definitely on full frame you’ll get some vignetting, but most full frame cameras have also a crop mode.

Compared to the Sony 35mm f1.8 OSS this lens is larger, but it has better optics wide open, and that 5mm difference helps a lot in many situations.

The build quality of this lens is exceptional, and it feels very sturdy and well-made in your hand. It has no buttons, just a smooth digital focus ring.

The autofocus is incredibly fast with the newest firmware, and the image quality is breathtakingly sharp. The wide aperture of f1.4 makes this lens perfect for low-light situations, and the bokeh that it produces is just stunning.

I have used this lens for a variety of situations like event, street, portrait and landscape photography and videography, and the results have been nothing short of amazing. It’s a perfect focal length for all around work with only one lens.

One thing to note is that the lens is not weather-sealed, so you’ll want to be careful when using it in rainy or dusty conditions. But that’s a minor gripe compared to all the positives this lens offers.

Overall, I highly recommend the Sigma 30mm f1.4 Sony E-mount lens to anyone who is looking for a high-quality prime lens for their Sony E-mount camera. It’s definitely worth the investment if you’re serious about your shots.
