Hey, this question probably pops up a lot but I was wondering how DX users feel, or FX (60mm Micro 2.8 vs 50mm 1.8) I am selling my awesome 50mm 1.8D lens that gives a nice bokeh effect because I felt the focal length was too long for a walking lens. Taking it to the park gave me a lot of limitations trying to compose my shots. This lens's FOV is also too narrow because I want to be able to do street photography. The 18-105mm kit lens that came with my D7000 is a decent general-purpose that...
Hi, long time lurker, first time poster. Nice to find you all, I have a Canon 5D, an EF 85mm f1.8, an EF 28-70mm f2.8L and an EF 17-40 F4L. I am generally very satisfied with my gear, knowing full well that in this particular case I am the limiting factor, not them. However, I do feel that my camera is pretty old now, and even though picture quality is still excellent, I do wish I could have something more modern. I shoot mostly landscapes and portraits but I would like to expand in street. I...
hi everyone I am looking for a 'normal prime' for my SLT and was wondering if anyone has done a bit more research in the mid-low cost range. I bought a 35mm sony (SAL35F18.AE) and I'm not very happy with what it does. I was wondering if the 30mm sigma 1.4 was any better or anything else out there is good. thanks for your views
Hi everybody, I got a second hand Sigma 30mm f1.4 which is in good shape except one minor problem: it squeaks like a seal when focusing and hunts quite a bit because the friction of the focussing mechanism causes stick-slip effects. I can feel the friction is higher that it should be when I focus manually. In good light the focusing work better simply because the motor works harder. Still focus is a bit of hit and miss. Now I had a similar problem with a sigma 50-500mm of which the af motor...
I am a new owner of a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC lens and I am trying to figure out its performance right now. I am aware that a lot of people who accuse their Sigmas of having front/back-focusing problems are actually witnessing a camera body calibration problem in phase detection autofocusing and only noticed it with the Sigma because its shallow DOF at f/1.4 exposes camera calibration issues much more than standard aperture lenses do. I decided to test my new lens on my Rebel t4i and I’m a...
Hello Everyone,I posted a similar thread on another forum but haven't gotten a response. I'll try to keep this one brief and to the point.I bought a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens a couple weeks ago, and after taking some basic test shots of my kids and dogs around the house at f/1.4 - 2.0, I'm not getting the same razor sharp results that I saw on a lot of the sample pictures people posted using their Sigma 30mm. I understand it won't be super sharp all the way across when it's wide open, but mine...
