So what do YOU use as your party lens?

Yeah, i believe it's the best... I mean, the sigma 30 is just a 31 for less money (and less quality! :D )

Sigma 30 1.4 normally, sigma 10-20 and a flash bouncing on ceiling/walls if I'm in the right mood.

The 55 1.8 is the first non-kit lens I bought almost two years ago, since then many other passed in my k-mount but it still proves himself useful.
This is what I got yesterday with a tripod and a remote command.

Yeah, the best comment I got (well, my mother did when she went printing my pics), was followed after the typical "good camera" by loads of assumptions about the post production.. well it was just a pic taken with an old fuji bridge in landscape mode and a bit of sharpen.

Pentax FA 35mm f2.0 vs Sigma AF 30mm f/1.4

I think I can tell my experience, since I own the 30 1.4 (old non hsm version) and the DA 35 ltd, and my friends have plenty of FA35 and 31 LTDs.

The 30 is one of my favorite, it renders people in a beautiful way, it has a smooth bokeh, and it separates focal planes in a unique and very precise way. I think it's job is to shoot at people in interior, mainly in the evening, and this is exactly what I bought him for. Is it perfect? No. It is a tool suited for a job, and it does it VERY well (and for a good price also).

The 35 ltd actually is all of this, plus pentax colors, smaller, better construction, sharp as hell and even from border to border. I use it as my normal lense in every situation except what I described above, when I use the 30. Don't let the word "macro" fool you, this is a perfect all around lens with terrific close-focus capabilities... oh it's a real 1:1 macro but I don't need it.

The FA35 is THE choice if you don't need macro OR close-focus, small, light, FF, cheap, wonderful, even.... back in film era (back? I shoot on film also this week-end so it's not past for me) we walked around with a 50 prime mainly, now this is "a wonderful normal fifty-like prime for aps-c".

What about the 31ltd? If you have the money take it and forget every othe discussion. Period.


I am not a pixel peeper (well, I am but I don't buy lens for pixel peeping), I prefer the "wow" factor and the global look of the image, so consider carefully for what are you buying a 30-35 for and make your choice.

This lens is THE people shooter.. at least in interior!!

Just some photos I took yesterday evening, this lens impress me!


1. sooooooo tridimensional!



2. me



3. the out-of-focus transition is really smooth even at medium distance


4. look how the girl plan is separated from the others'. EDIT: it reminds me of old baby board books, and consider that part of the effet got lost in the reduction for the web.
