A best seller made even better. This
large aperture standard digital SLR camera lens is in APS-C format, making
it ideal for many different types os photographic expression.
Offering the highest level of
image quality, this large-aperture F1.4 standard lens stimulates the
desire to create.
Sigma pioneered the
large-aperture APS-C format standard lens category with its famous 30mm
F1.4 lens. Now that we have reorganized all our lenses into three product
lines, we are proud to introduce the fully updated SIGMA 30mm F1.4 DC HSM,
which offers an angle of view equivalent to 45mm on a 35mm camera.
Offering an angle of view and sense of perspective extremely close to that
of human vision, this lens stimulates the desire to create and is ideal
for many different types of photographic expression. It is a superb go-to
lens for artistic photography. Featuring an advanced design and the latest
manufacturing technologies, this lens delivers the highest level of image
The full realization of the
Art product concept for you to hold in your own hands and appreciate with
your own eyes.
Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical
performance and tremendous expressive power, our new Art line of lenses
delivers top-level image quality. With unsurpassed expressive performance,
these lenses reach the high standards demanded by photographers with an
artistic, creative inclination. Along with landscapes, portraits,
still-life, close-up and casual snaps, they're perfect for the kind of
photography that unleashes the inner artist. Ideal for studio photography,
they offer just as much expressive scope when capturing architecture,
starry skies, underwater shots and many other scenes.
HSM (hypersonic motor) delivers high AF speed and
extremely quiet performance. An optimized algorithm offers even smoother
automatic focusing, and full-time manual focus override is another key
Incorporating a Rear Focus
The lens incorporates a rear focus system that
prevents focus-dependent variation in aberration, making high-level image
quality possible throughout the entire image. With their unchanging barrel
length, these lenses also enhance balance and stability for the
photographer. Furthermore, since the front of the lens does not rotate,
polarizing filters can be used with extra convenience.
TSC (Thermally Stable
A first for the industry, the barrel of the lens
features a new TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) that offers minimal
thermal shrinkage combined with exceptional hardness. It also offers 25%
greater elasticity than polycarbonate. Since its thermal shrinkage is low,
TSC matches well with metal parts, further contributing to the
high-precision construction of the lens. TSC also makes possible slimmer
forms for parts like zoom rings and scaling rings.
Flare and ghosting
From an early stage in the lens design process,
flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design
resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. Sigma's
Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers
produce sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions. The
included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which
can have a negative effect on rendering performance.
