Re: Perhaps I am a lucky guy


I read several bad histories about the IQ from Sigma 30 f/1.4.

Some years ago I tried the first one in a shop in Frankfurt, Germany - and it was obvious it had serious front focus issue when mounted into my D200. I did not buy it.

One year later I had my second trial. This time in USA with a sample from B&H. Using the same D200 it looked very good, at least acceptable in a first fast test. When eventually I went to D300s I had the chance to "fine focus" it. Very good results, even wide open, and amazing results when using DxO to process the NEF files.

Perhaps I am a luck guy. Perhaps you could give a "second chance" to this little lens...

All the best,
