or should i avoid them like thier zooms?
looking at Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX DG Aspherical
I wouldn't mind their 15mm fisheye... on the crop sensor, its almost a good wide angle lens.
the 30mm f/1.4 is good too
is that decent wide open?
$470 a bit high for a speciality lens
no clue, never used one. I've heard good things about it though... and I wasn't *too* impressed w/ my 24-70 Sigma wide open @ 2.8
Its fairly good, but at 1.4 the dof is very shallow. So far i've found the biggest grip with the lens to be misfocus. It'll front and back focus on me especially using the flash. I'd say its 1 out of every 5 clicks, so I take 2 shots when its an important picture. But when it hits the focus, its spot on and sharp.
Others have had better luck on the focus with their lens, so it might be just my copy.
i dont think sigma makes the 30 in a mount i own. however at least i have hope that they can still make a decent prime...
what do you have?
I came close to getting this lens, but every sample I see wide open looks terrible. Here's a review:
The Sigma 30 is awesome if you can find a good copy. I've had the 35L and kept the Sigma cause it was just as sharp wide open and the colors were good also. Only thing the canon had it beat on was focus speed
I bought a used copy and before I bought it I had the seller take pics wide open to make sure it didn't have any focusing issues
Yes only if you get a good copy. i have had two now and they are fucking great. however my friends is super soft.
i want to get it in sony-minolta mount, i have other mounts...
Why would you limit yourself? Get a canon or nikon so you have more choices!
i has a canon FD mount
i has a Leica screw mount
i has a pentax 42 screw mount adapter
