Sigma 30mm art
4 months ago

Hi, new to the alpha system(and cameras in general). I've got the 10-18,18-55,50,and 55-210.  I've found a good deal locally on the sigma 30mm. Would this be a worthwhile investment?  I've been told you're not cool if you shoot with the kit lens, so this one looks like it fits nicely in the center of my kit focal range and is close to a nifty fifty.

Dxomark gave rave it pretty good reviews.  It  isn't super fast and has no OSS so maybe not the best handheld lowlight lens.  Otherwise, does anyone own this and is it useful?

sony makes a faster 35 but it's more expensive.  I'd like to start moving away from such reliance on zoom to frame my shots unless it's really needed for telephoto like on the 55-210. Maybe learn better composition by zooming with my feet?

and I have lens fever!
