Overview

This Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM lens, built for professional use, is a high quality prime lens suitable for professional use delivering outstanding optical performance for the discerning photographer. As a large aperture standard lens for digital cameras with a fast 1.4 aperture makes handheld shooting in dim light possible. 30mm corresponds to the diagonal of the imaging sensor found on most small chip cameras and as such, functions as a “normal” lens closely replicating the human eye’s field of vision.

Unfortunately I didn't have time to set up any lighting, and natural light was starting to dim coming through the window, as it gets dark up in Canada around 4pm in the afternoon. Though I absolutely love the DOF this lens produces.
