Lens Review
Introduction | Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN A Sony E lens performance | Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN A Sony E Versus Carl Zeiss Planar Touit 1.8/32 Sony E both mounted on Sony NEX-7 | Conclusion

With a maximum aperture f/2.8 it’s not aimed low light shooters but at $199 it looks like good value for a general-purpose standard lens. Sharpness levels are really only average and it has slightly high chromatic aberration and vignetting, though the latter two points can be rectified to a degree in-camera for JPEGs or with software for RAW files.
