Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

I bought this lens secondhand from Camera Electronic in Perth before an overseas trip in December 2013.
I used it throughout my holiday in Spain and got some shots I'm very happy with using this lens.

Then in early 2014 I found a deal on a Pentax 31mm that was too good not to buy...so I have both. I have hesitated in selling the Sigma, but I really can't justify keeping them both.

The condition of the lens is excellent. No issues at all with body, glass or operation...it's really fine.

There is one point to note. The previous owner must have got sick of trying to line up the Sigma lens cap, so there is a small white paint dot on the lens barrel to mark the correct point for attaching the rear lens cap, and a corresponding small white line and dot on the lens cap itself. No doubt this would be easy to clean off if desired, but to be honest it does make it easier to fit the somewhat fiddly original rear cap.

The lens will come with the original hood, front lens cap and rear lens cap.
I did not receive the lens pouch, etc. when I purchased the lens...so...that's it, lens, hood front and rear caps.

The lens will be well packed and the price includes shipping in Australia. Payment by Paypal is good, and if you are in Perth and would prefer to collect and do COD that's fine too.
If you are overseas I will discount the cost of Australian postage and you pay actual postage cost by agreement.

I'm happy to accept returns if the lens is not as described.

Any questions, queries or concerns just let me know.
Cheers
Dean

Such an awesome lens. Would love to see your perspective of the strengths of the two now you have had them. I call the Sigma 30 "The dream maker." It makes art. Hope it finds a good home.

Hi
I don't think I'm a great lens reviewer, just a willing amatuer with LBA

I was really happy when I picked up the Sigma. Purely cosmetically I think it's a good looking lens, compact but not small and looks good on my K-5. I brought it before going on an overseas holiday to Europe and used the 30mm as my walk around for a number of days.

Not too long after getting back I found a great deal on a like new silver FA 31mm Limited, too good to pass up. The construction of the 31mm is really nice, big for a limited, but still fairly compact and just feels great.

Optically I think they both deliver great subject isolation.
When processing in lightroom it seems that the 31mm preset makes less adjustments than the preset for the Sigma...so I guess that translates to the 31mm having less vignetting and distortion. Subjectively the out of focus transition on the 31mm seems nice.
They are both very sharp lenses when you hit focus.
I guess I would just say I agree with the majority reviews on the forum...both very impressive optically and both capable of producing beautiful images.

Sorry this isn't more detailed, as mentioned I'm really probably not the best person to provide this comparison...

Thanks for your interest.
Cheers
Dean
