Product Description

Introducing the Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens

The definitive compact fast-aperture standard prime for mirrorless systems.

Powerful but portable

This high-performance crop-sensor prime delivers outstanding image quality and an ultra-wide F1.4 aperture in a very portable body. Weighing just 265g (L-Mount version), it’s one of the lightest F1.4 lenses on the market for mirrorless cameras, so is ideal for photographers who need both performance and portability from their kit. The 30mm F1.4 is ideal for street photography, portraits, weddings, travel and day-to-day shooting, and thanks to its fast AF is also perfect for video.

The wide F1.4 aperture delivers a shallow depth-of-field for blurry backgrounds, and it also makes it easier to achieve blur-free shots when working hand-held in low light. The lens is available in a range of mirrorless mounts including L-Mount, Sony E-mount, Canon EF-M, Micro Four Thirds and Nikon Z Mount. When used on an APS-C sensor camera, the lens offers an equivalent focal length of 45mm, and when used on Micro Four Thirds, it’s 60mm. The SIGMA 30mm F1.4 is part of a series of portable crop-sensor primes with an F1.4 maximum aperture.

Robust Build and Exceptional Features

Crafted with Sigma's signature attention to quality, the 30mm F1.4 lens features a robust yet lightweight polymer construction, ensuring durability without compromising portability. The large, rubberised focus ring offers intuitive manual focusing, while a petal-type lens hood effectively controls flare, particularly in bright sunlight.

Furthermore, the durable brass mount, complemented by a rubber seal (excluding EF-M mount), effectively safeguards against dust and moisture intrusion.

Experience Unparalleled Image Quality

High-Performance Optics for Superior Results

Equipped with an advanced optical design comprising 9 elements in 7 groups, including 2 aspherical elements, 2 SLD elements, and 3 FLD elements, our 30mm F1.4 lens ensures razor-sharp images with rich colour rendition. Say goodbye to common optical issues such as chromatic aberration, flare, and vignetting, thanks to the meticulous engineering of this lens.

Chromatic aberration is meticulously controlled, even in high-contrast areas, while vignetting is minimal, even at wider apertures. Our lens features advanced coatings to minimize flare and ghosting, ensuring pristine image quality even in challenging lighting conditions.

Perfect for Street Photography

With a full-frame-equivalent focal length of 45mm, our 30mm F1.4 lens is perfectly suited for street and travel photography. Its compact and lightweight design, coupled with the impressive F1.4 aperture, makes it an indispensable tool for capturing stunning images in any environment. The shallow depth-of-field and smooth bokeh enhance subject isolation, allowing you to create captivating images with ease.

Unmatched Portability

Despite its exceptional performance, the 30mm F1.4 lens remains remarkably portable, comparable in size and weight to Sigma's 18-50mm F2.8 DG DN | C standard zoom lens. While lacking the versatility of a zoom lens, its faster F1.4 aperture enables superior light capture and depth-of-field control, making it an indispensable tool for any photographer.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
