Comparison: Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art vs 30mm f/1.4 Art

During the last eighteen months, I’ve used and owned several normal focal lengths. First, the 30mm f/1.4 EX for the SA-mount, then the DP2M with its 30/2.8, slightly later the 30mm f/1.4 Art and only recently the mighty 35mm f/1.4 Art for full frame. I tested all the three ones before the 35mm Art against ...

Comparison: DP2 Merrill vs. Sigma SD1M & 30mm f/1.4 ART

I’ve already compared the DP2M to the 30mm f/1.4 EX (Part 1,Part 2) and discovered that DP’s lens is much sharper. I’ve also compared the two 30mm lenses, the EX and the new ART (Part 1,Part 2). The only thing left to do is to compare the DP2M with the new ART on the SD1M. ...

Review: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART is the first lens belonging to one of the tree new series from Sigma (Art, Sports, Contemporary), which I’ve had the chance to use more extensively. After a month of use, many photos and two comparisons in regards to bokeh and sharpness with the 30mm f/1.4 EX, I find that I ...

Battle of the 30s: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX vs 30mm f/1.4 ART PART2

I must confess that I like the act of taking pictures a considerable amount more than drawing comparisons afterwards. This is why so much time has passed since the last Bokeh-comparison between the ART and the EX HSM. A month later, I could finally get myself to begin searching for suitable motifs equipped with my ...

Taking a Walk with the 30mm f/1.4 ART

I have been meaning to take a walk with this new toy of mine several days ago, but in this heat you feel like a fish out of the water. The last thing you want to think about is taking pictures. Late afternoon, I was able to prompt myself to do it. In the middle ...

The Battle of the 30s: Sigma 30mm f1.4 EX vs 30mm f1.4 ART Part 1

50mm (full frame equivalent) fixed focal lengths are counted among the lenses with the widest field of application. It comes as no surprise, then, that both 30mm f/1.4 Sigmas are repeatedly mentioned in threads focusing on purchase advice. Before the appearance of the 30mm ART, the selection was somewhat more transparent. You could either opt ...

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART Hands on!

You have read correctly! I had the opportunity to test Sigma’s fast APSC fixed focal length, the 30mm f/1.4 ART. It is too early to draw any conclusions, except that the new finish actually looks as valuable as initially seen on product images and also feels accordingly. Zeiss-like, if you ask me. The surface is ...

Comparison: Sigma DP2 Merrill vs Sigma SD1 & 30mm f1.4 Part 2

In the previous comparison, I promised to shoot and hand in further photos with the Sigma SD1 and the DP2 Merrill using a tripod. I tried to adapt the image sections as well as in any way possible but it turned out to be trickier than I thought, especially because the 30mm of the DP2m ...

RRP and availability of the Sigma USB dock and first review/sample pictures for the 30mm f1.4 art

The hotly debated USB-Dock by Sigma, said to render all new lenses programmable, will be available in stores at the end of April. Different from what others feared, the dock will be sold over the counter for a reasonable €49. The only thing missing now is appropriate art/contemporary/sports lenses by Sigma and the tuning and ...
