Pros:No doubt the excellent value for money. Even as new takes home 160 euro (about) used, having patience, a centone.rnNitidezza, color returned (on Sony Nex), compactness (it is not a pancake, but it is reduced in size ... .diciamo which it is comparable to 16 to 50 from sony Alpha collapsible) kit
Cons:Opening good but not fast (f2.8), so that effort, as a rule, to "disconnect" appreciably subjects from the background ... aesthetically "questionable" (I have the black knurled version, I think the old one): the smooth version is quite ugly, and very plasticky ....
Opinion:I use it on an old Nex C3. Returns excellent images ... beautiful colors, "brilliant" but true to life, excellent sharpness (like all Sigma DN ART for sony and m4 / 3) the corresponding focal if used on Sony APS is that of a 45mm (in 24per36) 60mm if you use it on micro 4/3 (but in the latter case, they are honest, a 60 mm is difficult to exploit .... I had tried it at the time) .rnE 'perspective also quite compact, the Nex not become their own pocket with this 30, but almost ... rnDistorce a tad if you "overdo" approaching the subjects, but, in any case, for the same use and conditions it does in the end even the well more expensive 35 1.8 OSS FE of sony, which is one stop brighter, has stabilized, but a small insignificant detail, costs three times or less !!! rnIl low price makes it a bargain! At the same focal length, the "gain" of yield with respect to the zoom in 16 50 Kit of sony Alpha, in somesition 30mm, is netto.rnIn good light conditions the brightness f 2.8 is more than enough .... with little light, for example in closed environments, soffre.rnPer such conditions, or for those who want greater cmq maximum brightness, there is also a version 1.4 f 30 sigma, I tested a couple of days: it costs less than 35 sony OSS 1.8, and in my opinion is worth much more.
Opinion:Exceptional value for money, excellent sharpness coupled to 16mpx Sony sensor, autofocus slower than the home Sony lenses, 45 mm of APSC, the large focus ring, also excellent in using video, which accompagniata to focus peacking Sony makes nice l 'use in manuale.rnAssolutamente recommended as an alternative to 35mm 1.8 sony
Opinion:great lens, which takes home less than 200 € and is perfect as an all-rounder, with the angle of view equivalent to 45 ff. It gives excellent images already at full aperture. I was surprised by the excellent sharpness. very compact and light, good construction and a great value. the only flaw is that I would rather be f2, even less sharp, I would have preferred to have a more important focus, which still is not bad at 2.8. I can not recommend it, along with his brother 60mm.
