Our review

The Sigma 30 F1.4 DC DN | C is a great autofocus F1.4 option for Micro Four Thirds. While it doesn't take the top spot for sharpness, it offers good, consistent performance across the frame for much less price than the competition.

Good for: Portraits, subjects needing shallow depth of field

Not so good for: The field of view is a bit too narrow to be a do-it-all prime
