sigma 30mm f1.4 dc dn lens

Sigma Imaging UK has just made an announcement about their 30mm f/1.4 DC DN lens. Apparently they have found a problem with the lens in the MFT mount. They have discovered that it doesn’t sufficiently adjust distortion while shooting JPEG.

Right now Sigma is looking into fixing the problem to update the lens firmware.

When the new firmware update is ready and released, Sigma will make an announcement to let everyone know that the problem is solved.

Sigma has recently announced the SD Quattro and the SD Quattro H, two new mirrorless ILCs. Each camera uses the SA lens mount just like in the SLRs. The body of the cameras have a viewfinder built into it, which isn’t typical.

Sigma SD Quattro H

The Sigma SD Quattro H is a camera targeted specifically to those who have an immense care for a high image quality. This camera has a bigger APS-H sensor which produces great quality images which compare to those from a 51 MP DSLR that has a Bayer pattern sensor.

A few highlights of the SD Quattro H include:

  • A quick set button and lock switch
  • super fine detail exposure mode
  • 3 inch 1.62m Dot Main LCD and Sub Monitor

Sigma SD Quattro

The new Sigma SD Quattro has a two mode autofocus system and a Foveon Quattro sensor which helps to produce high quality images. The images taken with the Sigma SD Quattro can be compared to that of a 39 MP DSLR that has a Bayer pattern sensor.

A few highlights of the new SD Quattro include:

  • ISO 6400 & 3.6 fps Continuous shooting
  • Dual True III Imaging Processing Engine
  • A super fine detail mode that captures a range of 7 exposures in one shot

What’s the big hype over these Sigma Ceramic filters?

These filters are supposed to be the strongest so far in the industry and they have proven that statement. These Sigma ceramic filters are expected to protect your lenses like no other filter on the market.

They prevent damage to the lens and are scratch and shock resistant. The filters also repel against almost everything. Dust, oil, fingerprints, water, you name it.

A newly released video from Sigma shows what happens when a 1.7 ounce metal ball is dropped from 4 feet onto the Sigma Ceramic Filter compared to other brand’s filters. This video shows just how strong these new Sigma filters are.

sigma 35mm f/1.4
The team at lensrentals.com put together a breakdown of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens in comparison to the Canon 35mm f/1.4. The teardown goes into very great depth as to how the lens is made and put together. In conclusion, they believe that just like many other Sigma lenses, it is very well made for the price it entails. It is said that:

This lens is constructed very well. There isn’t the amazing heavy-duty construction of the Canon 35mm f/1.4. Instead, I’d characterize the construction of the Sigma as very efficient and carefully laid out.

Each of the lenses have different disadvantages and advantages to them, but they chose the Canon lens over the Sigma. It all comes down to personal preference when choosing one over the other.
