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 ...


Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART Hands on!

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 ...
