  • Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Wicked-sharp in center, solid build, FTM Focus
    Soft in corners, needed calibration

    The lens had a bad front-focusing problem on my 20D, but it came back perfect after Sigma's calibration. The lens is brilliantly sharp in the center even wide open and my copy isn't too bad on the sides/corners when stopped down. Wonderfully useful focal length on a crop camera. This is my weapon of choice for low-light portraits and group shots. The build is solid, like all EX lenses, and focus is silent and reasonably fast.
