Style: Nikon F Mount 30mm F1.4 DC HSM (Nikon)
I sold my first Sigma 30mm 1.4 and regretted it because it was perfect for video and for photography as well. Now an upgraded version came out and after reading other peoples review I decided to take a chance on it. br brThis has pretty much the same review as the originalc some people saying it focuses good and others saying it doesnt. I guess that was the main issue. Upon opening the boxc this new Art version looks much better than the first and quality is much much better as well. It is a little heavierc however it is a beauty. The focus ring is much smoother than the first. Overall much much better quality. br brAgainc I mainly focus manually because I take mostly videosc but there are days when I do like to take photos. In bright light I have no problem auto-focusingc when it gets darker its a hit and missc which isnt good because this fast lens is supposed to excel in low-light. I havent tried micro-adjusting the lensc will try that laterc but as of now its a hit and miss in low light. For videos this is perfectc focus ring is smooth and bokeh is nice. No problem for videos. br brThings it comes with are lens pouchc front and back lens cap and lens hood. (This is what I like about Sigma) Back lens cap is wider than the canonc and will not tip over easily. Front lens capc has the pinch style which is perfect if you have the lens hood on. Lens hood is roundc like the canon 50mm 1.4. I prefer the old Sigma 30mm Lens Hoodc it was the petal looking onec much better looking. br brEven if mines has auto-focusing issue in low-light I have no problem because I will try micro-adjusting it. If that doesnt work there is always the Sigma warranty and they can fix itc so no worries there. (Just have to wait) For videos howeverc I really like the smooth focus and bokeh. br br4 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-focusingc which I hope can be fix by micro-adjusting it. The pouch and lens hood are a plus.
