Overview

This high-performance standard lens is designed exclusively for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and has the equivalent angle of view as a 60mm lens (35mm equivalent focal length) on the Micro Four Thirds systems and 45mm (35mm equivalent focal length) on the E-mount system.
Two glass mold aspherical lenses, including a double-sided aspherical lens, provide excellent correction for all types of aberration. The inner focusing system corrects the fluctuation of aberration to maintain image quality regardless of the focal distance. Sigma’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting as well as provides sharp and high contrast images even at the maximum aperture. The superior telecentric optical design improves the image quality throughout the frame. The optical design also allows the lens to be compact and lightweight. This lens benefits from a newly developed linear AF motor which moves the lens elements directly without the need for gears or the drive of other mechanical parts. This system ensures accurate and quiet autofocusing, making the lens suitable for video recording as well as still photos. The lens features a rounded 7 blade diaphragm creating an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image. This Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN has a minimum focusing distance of 30cm/11.8in and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:8.1.

Very quick photo taken from our front gate. This lens just delivers the goods, all the time, almost never comes off my camera.

il vuoto, 03

Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN 1/500 8 100

Il Vuoto (the void) is the title of the new photographic project that I'm currently working on. Subject: those peripheral areas where human settlement and countryside meet. Location: cities and towns of the Pianura Padana region (northern Italy). Style: black&white, 45mm equivalent fixed focal length, square format. I may add images with different format if the subject demands it. Theme: I wish to convey the absurdity of modern urban development, revealing urban areas (be it private or public) built with no interest in concepts like beauty, social function, respect for the historic and environmental identity of the territory where we live; an urban space that spreads, dilutes itself, into the countryside thus effectively giving up its own identity in relation to its surroundings (because there are no more surroundings). Such urban space becomes a place without identity, a non-place as defined by Marc Augé: the void indeed.
