The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Micro Four Thirds is a fast and versatile prime lens. This lens is a 60mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Micro Four Thirds provides a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, making it ideal for working in low-light conditions. It also offers increased control over depth of field for selective focus control. The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Micro Four Thirds features an optical design that makes use of one aspherical element and one double-sided aspherical element pair, which significantly helps to reduce spherical aberrations, resulting in sharp and clear images throughout the aperture range.
A high-refractive index element is also featured, to minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations, and a Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to control lens flare and ghosting in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, benefitting both stills shooting and video recording, this compact prime also incorporates a stepping AF motor or smooth, near-silent autofocus performance. Designed as a versatile standard lens, the mixture of speed and optical prowess make this a go-to lens for mirrorless shooters.
- A truly versatile slightly-longer-than-normal prime, this 30mm lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras where it provides a 60mm equivalent focal length.
- Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords greater focus control for producing shallow depth of field effects.
- One aspherical element and one double-sided aspherical element control a range of spherical aberrations and distortions for increased sharpness and resolution. Additionally, a high-refractive index, high-dispersion glass element is also integrated into the design, and offers anomalous partial dispersion characteristics to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing.
- A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
- A stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance.
- A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
- The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. The outside of the lens barrel is also engraved with the year of production.
- The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability.
