Fun with the Sigma 30/1.4 DC HSM Art
I have a no-name 0.45X wide adapter that I bought some time ago (it is a bit unusual, as it can be taken apart, and then you can use the rear end as a stand-alone close-up filter). I have found that it works great on my Nikon 40/2.8 DX macro, and on my Nikon 85/3.5 VR macro, but today I tried it on my Sigma. My wide adapter comes in many sizes, but the one I got is 58mm, and luckily I had a fitting step-down ring (the Sigma has a 62mm filter thread).
With the adapter on the lens it behaves much like a 20mm lens, something I am used to, as I have a Voigtlander 20/3.5 on my D600 ever so often, and I also have 8mm (a 10mm lens with a Panasonic 0.79X adapter) lens on my Nikon 1 V1, which also behaves like a 20mm lens on an FX body.
Have not tested them side by side, but I plan to!
Some shots from today.
No lamps were used, just daylight on an overcast day.
