  • Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM

    7 out of 10 points and not recommended
    fast accurate AF for non-hsm
    NO AF/MF switch, noisy AF, spinning focus ring, wrong Exif data.

    Sony mount sigma 30 1.4

    pros: build quality is good, no more crinkle paint, comes with hood, image quality is good, fast auto-focus.

    cons: AF is noisy, the focus ring rotates when you auto-focus, but the biggest con for me was that the AF/MF switch is missing! switching from AF to MF requires you to go into the camera settings.
    also the lens is giving the wrong EXIF data.
