Sigma 30mm EX vs Art?
Apr 4, 2014

I'm looking to but this lens and am wondering if i should get the new Art or the old EX version.

Older version is $20 cheaper in my country, and comes with a free 60 day insurance against accidents. New version costs a bit more, but apart from being a refresh it comes with a lens hood (which i would probably not use a lot).

When it comes to looks i like the old one a bit more, but looks are of low priority for me. Currently I'm using the Nex 6.

Considering this, does the new one feature any improvements (function, fixed 1st gen errors, or handling) over the old one? And in case i ever were to upgrade my body, how does the new one work on full frame sensors compared to the old one?
