I have the Sigma trilogy: 19mm f/2.8, 30mm f/2.8 and 60mm f/2.8

They are equivalent to 28mm, 45mm and 90mm FOVs.

I just love those Sigma lenses and couldn't live without them on my NEX-F3.

I also have the Samyang 8mm f/2.8 fisheye which is also wonderful. And I have read very good reviews about Samyang 12mm f/2

I got rid of my Sigma 30, but kept the 19 when I got the Touit 32. I loved that 30 and can say it compares well with my 32 with the exception of the 32 being one stop faster.

I have the great 30 but if I need bokeh I use the Sony 30 macro.

I plan to get the Sony 30 macro for macro photos... but I didn't know it had better bokeh, want to share an example photo?

It won't. Of the five 30-35mm lenses (E30, DN30, Touit 32, E35 and FE35), the best subject isolation possibility is with E35.

I see! Well after all the 30-35 lenses aren't well-suited for bokeh anyway, I use my Sigma 60mm f/2.8 when I want bokeh, or my vintage Jupiter-37A 135mm f/3.5

It is easy to get compression with longer FL, so obviously 60mm f/2.8 and (I used to have and loved it) Jupiter-37A would do so. But among the five normal FOV AF lenses, E35 will provide the most flexibility followed by Touit 32, FE 35, DN 30 and E 30 macro (in that order).

And, it is possible to get good subject isolation with 35/1.8 without moving very close (as would be needed with slower lenses, more so with shorter FL), and while the background won't be as compressed as longer FL would, you get more of the ambiance due to wider FOV:


This is why I like E 35 for people photography as well (wider FOV also makes room for off-center composition).

that photo is good makes me want to buy the 35/1.8 too

do you think the 35/1.8 has a place in the photo bag even though i have sigma 30/2.8?

It would be a redundant FL. If you get E35, don't see why you would need DN30. Might be better off complimenting E35 with DN19/E20 or E24 for wider FOV.

well the 30/2.8 is smaller but it isn't much difference. Yeah the E24 would be great to have, too bad it's more expensive!
