Sigma 30mm with G3 is not as sharp as with Sony NEX C3
Dec 21, 2012

After debating which lens to buy for my new Panasonic G3, I bought a Sigma 30mm. I took few photos and they are not as sharp as ones I got with Sigma 30mm with Sony NEX C3. I don't know whether this is because:

1) I got a bad sample

2) IQ of G3 is not as bad as Sony NEX C3

3) me

Photos are not bad but as good as I got with Sigma 30mm for NEX, which were very sharp.

I am disappointed the way B&H packed the lens, specially after they agreed to put Air Bubbles through out the shipping box. As usual, it came in a small shipping box with Air Bubbles on one side of the lens box with the other side against the shipping box. I have never got a camera or lens from B&H with packaging material (air bubbles) securing all side of the camera or lens box. I think they try to save few cents by using the smallest possible shipping box at the expense of protecting the lens. I hope the lens is not misaligned.
