today's handful - testing sigma 30mm f1.4


Link Posted 03/05/2010 - 17:54
I have experienced some purple fringing with my 30/1.4 but only once (that I have noticed) right at the edge of a brightly lit object quite wide open. But normally it's just not an issue.

Very nice lens - ask Lilly.

Mat the last one is so good I wish I'd taken it! In fact, I was trying this weekend for just that effect but never got near it. I'm not embarrassing myself by posting the results!

Super lens. I'm not familiar with it at all. Autofocus, I take it.


Best wishes,

Thanks very much Andrew. The lens is an autofocus one (unless you turn the AF off of course). I picked it up second hand at the London Camera Exchange on a bit of a whim (more expensive than my typical whim though) and I'm pretty pleased with the results so far. It seems very sharp and the f1.4 means you get a very shallow DOF - now I need to put it through it's paces in low light...
