Opinion:The full-opening sharpness is amazing, the details it manages to capture are amazing, it's compact and light, perfect to be paired with micro 4/3 bodies. The focus is fast and silent. It's well built but the smooth, shiny finish of the barrel isn't quite the best. The equivalent focus on the full format is 120 mm and is in my opinion an atypical focal length, I use it mainly for medium-distance portraits with excellent deadlift of the floors and a blurry at the full opening very pleasant. I would have preferred a minimum focus distance more suitable for macro shots. The equipment of a lampshade and a sturdy and well-made enclosure is appreciable as usual for sigma. In conclusion I think that the value for money of this lens is absolutely exceptional, I would recommend it to anyone who wants a portrait lens.
Pros:absurd sharpness, bokeh, lightness, lampshade and case
Cons:smooth fire dial, light flare in against light
Opinion:At the price at which it is proposed is a lens to have for those who want to start with the portrait (spectacular bokeh), I do not own the olymus 45 mm 1.8 but having seen some photos I thought was almost better given the price, bought used at 120 euros is so sharp that you can dabble even in some close photos, it looks very good the details, af quite fast , but why the smooth manual fire ring? They also provide purse and lampshade, I do not know if the whole series of these goals is so or I was lucky, this is given away.
Pros:Light, Sharp. Hood and semi-rigid enclosure in outfit and it's not cheap. Great Colors
Cons:Smooth Ring, lack of stabilization. AF sometimes slow, but improved after the last firmware update of the a6000
Opinion:Mounted on a6000 has proven to be a great lens. The smooth ring is very uncomfortable. The stabilization Manacanza was for me really a big problem. Overall a great lens, light, nice to carry around. The supplied housing is very useful to preserve the objective and avoid the blows. Also Good the lens hood
Pros:Light, economical, bright. Good optical quality. Hood and semi-rigid bag in outfit. What more do you want?
Cons:The smooth barrel will be nice to see, but to handle the lens is really very uncomfortable: slips from the hand. It doesn't have the focus scale.
Opinion:The Sigma DN's have a good reputation, in my opinion fully deserved. I use it on an Olympus OM-D and-M-10 II and on a Panasonic GF-5, both Micro 4/3, which is equivalent to a 120 mm used on full-frame. It is a focal length that I like very much, suitable for both the portrait with the foreground of the face and attention to the focus on the eyes of the subject, that to a certain type of landscape (for example farmhouse on a hill, mountain pastures). After years of zooming, also complicit with the offer of Sigma, I rediscovered the pleasure of fixed focal lengths: The result pays off, especially on the small Olympus that has the stabilization on the sensor. It is however a perspective that, in my opinion, requires a certain commitment to use: If you want, often gives you the pleasure of discovery. I put it often in the camera bag, next to a zoom 14-150: I do not weigh at all, also due to the system micro 4/3
Pros:Sharpness, lightweight and compact, good quality construction.
Cons:Only f2.8, no stabilization.
Opinion:Bought for the a6000, I needed a portrait with autofocus (to photograph the kids) and wanted a 85-90mm equivalent focal length, so I discarded the sony 50mm. I waited a few months before trying to write something about this goal, and even now I do it with some "shame," because I just think it's necessary to learn how to use these goals before getting an idea. RnI start from the end: when you hit the picture with Sigma 60, the latter is really beautiful, crystal clear in sharpness. However, it's not so easy to always get the picture, and I happen to miss much more than it does with shorter goals. Obviously, it will be said to me, well, now I understand it too. This is especially true in the closed; you need to use 1/100 or shorter times, otherwise it's easy to have micromasses (at least with my hands), and in combination with the maximum aperture of 2.8 you can easily reach 3200 ISO. THE'%3Bautofocus is fast but not fast, and in AF-C uses only the center of the frame, so the goal is not very suitable to follow the children's games. The blur is pleasing, in some cases with a slight swirl effect; if you pay attention to the subject / background distance, you can get very pleasant effects. The colors are beautiful, with a slight tendency (my impression) to the cool tones. The surgical sharpness of the lens means that in portraits, especially women, it is necessary to work in PP to slightly soften the face skin. Thus, with a relatively small expense, a compact and light canvas is bought, very suitable for philosophy of the a6000 and of the mirrorless in general, capable of obtaining high quality shots; in combination with the a6500, equipped with room stabilization, I guess its use is even more profitable.
