I am not aware that Sigma 30 has in camera lens correction. Did you switch it on or off for Sony E 35 f1.8? As you shot JPEG, if the correction was switched on, test wouldn't be fair in terms of optical performance.

For the JPEG shooters however, it is still relevant.

When the Sigma 30mm is mounted, the menu entries for lens correction are still active and you can switch between auto and off. But I highly doubt that there is some active correction for a third party lens. The auto-correction of distortion can help a little bit the sharpness but I don't think it will modify the results of this test. A RAW comparison is of course necessary to clear this out. But I was more interested in the JPEG results, because this is what I use 90% of the time.
