Sigma 30mm
In reply to Love To Shoot, Jan 6, 2013

The only one of the primes you suggest that I own is the Sigma 30mm. I bought it a few months ago and I haven't really used it a lot - not because I don't like it but because I have bought some other lenses as well that I use all the time. In fact I do like it. It has good build quality, is light, takes sharp pictures and renders the colors in a pleasing way. I took it out a few days ago and here are some samples:

I like the lens and can recommend it. It is popular and will fetch a good aftermarket price I think. My only gripe is that it will not go on a full frame camera, and that is why I might sell it in time and go for the new excellent Sigma 35 1.4 instead.
