Sigma Announce Price of the New 30mm F1.4 EX DC

Sigma Imaging (UK) Ltd will soon be taking the first deliveries of the new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC lens with a suggested retail price of £319.99.

This large aperture 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM lens is designed to match the APS-C size image sensors of digital SLR cameras. Two SLD glass elements are especially effective in the compensation of magnification chromatic aberration.

A molded glass aspherical lens at the rear lens group reduces colour aberration and provides high-quality image results.

The lens creates exceptionally sharp images of high contrast from its minimum focusing distance of 40cm to infinity.

The HSM design provides quiet high-speed auto-focus with full-time manual focus override. The large maximum aperture of F1.4 produces a versatile lens that performs superbly in a great range of applications, including portraiture, indoor and studio work and landscape photography.
