Pros: Opening, build quality, color rendition, sharpness.

Cons: Inaccurate autofocus (but with calibration is fine).

Opinion: Purchased used to 210 € for a standard of canon 80d, I much prefer to 50cc for images that makes me. Suffered very beginning of the classic front / back focus randomly, but then calibrating it with FOCAL program is now also clear to TA. I use it for both portrait (I find it more clearly the canon 50) for landscape / architecture and the latter very often at night. The blur is pleasant despite not having a perfectly circular bokeh. A used purchase definitely recommended for the price / quality of construction / yield

Pros: Focal "normal" on APSC, ultrasonic motor, construction quality, bright, price handyman, sharpness

Cons: I have not encountered it. You could say that is not for full frame, but you know at the time of purchase.

Opinion: Bought second-hand for the ridiculous sum of 200 Euros and mounted on D300, for the price that I got it I was incredibly surprised by the quality of this light, I expected it was very soft at 1.4 instead focus parts are extremely sharp this is a huge advantage for a superbright because it allows to use it serenely at room temperature (that is the reason why you buy certain optical), it is soft and fuzzy "off" plans wonderfully. From its best in ambientati portraits in my opinion, both the focal length for the plans dividend capacity. LA Build quality is that of Sigma EX, so solid, massive, extremely fluid ring, only flaw the sigma tires that tend to clear with use. Autofocus is not instantaneous but engages well, I read that someone complained, however, also depends on the autofocus module of the machine on which it is mounted on the barrel D300 hardly even at TA, instead of D80, for example, at room temperature withthe side is unusable, but obviously does not depend dall'obiettivo.rnAlle digits to which it is used (200-250) is absolutely a best buy. exceptional value for money.

Pros: f / 1.4, focal, build quality

Cons: none for me, maybe not very light, but we are talking about small goals

Opinion: Since the 'I bought (second hand) I really struggled to remove it from the camera. I had got on well with the Canon 50ino mom, my only experience of fixed lens, but I felt a bit 'long, being on aps-c. A 30mm (48mm then "real") instead of the focal length is perfect. L 'lens works very well to TA, the blur is very pleasant; closing by f / 4 and up get a good sharpness, perfect when you climb around f / 8. In my opinion it is also of high quality color rendering.

Pros: Excellent focal (better than 35 dk Nikkor which still feels too tight); Closed to f. 8 - f. 9 is ultranitous; Bokeh very pleasing to all opening; Very solid and "important" construction; Nice colors.

Cons: Only discrete autofocus for speed and precision; Sometimes inaccurate MAF with relative photos not perfectly focused;

Opinion: It gives the feeling (very nice) to have a "real" and very "pro" objective in the hand, exactly the opposite of what happens to the 35 Nikkor 1.8 dx, which I own, which, in the face of the first, looks like a plastic cap : Fine lightness, but not Yogurt jars in front of the reflex :-); The overall yield is very good, worthy of note and consistent with a fixed optic of this opening! Large apertures in some situations (but not in all and not always!) Give a somewhat "bleak" effect, that is, it almost seems It is super-soft, but not in fact, just the colors are not so contrasted and decided as it did when it "closed" a little the diaphragm: the overall yield, however, is very pleasing, even af ??1.4 where The optic is fully usable and enjoyable! RnIo, personally, if I take such a view of the genus is to use it often and willingly proThis opening! RnDo use f.8, f9, type for landscape photos, it becomes ultra-slim and always maintains a nice bokeh (obviously less blurred): never seen anything like that with other fixed ones I possess! RnThe autofocus works in So we can say ... questionable: on some occasions, even in full light, it is difficult to "take" the subject, and sometimes on some occasions (NEVER, though) the focus is not accurate: obviously there is It can be seen more clearly than when it is a little closed (NB: it is not a front back focus problem, because it does not always do so, say, on average, 1 out of 3); rn this soft side So much I complained, honestly, I did not notice it so clearly, ... As far as the 35 1.8 g dx, which I also possessed and used, in my opinion is a pelin underneath the render of color, but I consider it more opaque "Correct" as it distorts less: paradoxically, while having a field angle more Ù Wide and getting more involved with this problem, the portraits are better with the sigma 30 than with the nikkor 35; finally: if you find it at 160-170 or even 180 euros, buy it with your eyes closed, you will not regret it!

Pros: 1.4 and tridimensionalitàrn

Cons: Finish Sigma, SIN ONLY DX (35 sigma has just come out), the af in video mode on D 7000 does not go ... and the normal af should however be calibrated for each individual machine. I would have liked a working distance a tad bit less than say 35 to 30 cm that would give him a little arrow more ...

Opinion: L 'I took my son when he arrived ... needless to say we are so fond of hand, if the subject is not too much to one side gives great shots, fuzzy creamy, excellent tonal passages, little dominant, not to mention the movie full hd, but .. c 'is a but ..... is not the optics to look for pixels, out of 10, 12 0 16 mp see little difference ........ but probably an optical portrait should be so ... rnPrima of this' optical I had never considered this focal length, I must say that to 1.4, clearly flying over the resolution, it returns an excellent three-dimensional .. the subject comes out well .. well well, in video then ... which made me think about what could give a perspective on FX so .. His Majesty 35 afs 1.4.rnIn recommended short, but today, on DX, would estimate even the little nikon 35 1.8 afs.
