Review Lens: Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN A Mount 43

Lens Overview - Sigma 30mm F2.8

Distinguished by compact design, the silver Sigma 30mm f/2.8 DN Art is a sleek and optically refined portrait-length prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements to greatly reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for notable sharpness and highly accurate rendering. A Super Multi-Layer Coating is also featured and minimizes flare and ghosting for heightened contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions. Complementing the optics is a Linear AF motor, which realizes smooth and quiet autofocus performance, and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Portrait-length prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 60mm equivalent focal length.
The f/2.8 maximum aperture strikes a balance between being bright enough to suit working in available light situations while also promoting a lightweight, compact form factor.
Two aspherical elements help to control spherical aberrations and distortion to help realize greater sharpness and more accurate rendering.
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.
Linear AF motor achieves especially quiet and accurate autofocus performance that is suitable for both photo and video applications.
Brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
