Read onto find out which of these models perform best when paired with the new camera.
Sigma’s range of DN A lenses have been designed for mirrorless cameras using both MFT and APS-C sensors, albeit with different mounts. As the equivalent to a 45mm on an APS-C camera we’ve tested the 30mm f2.8 on the discerning Sony NEX-7. Read on to find out how well it performs.
