Reviews of the Sigma 16mm, 30mm and 56mm F1.4 DC DN C for Canon from around the web. »

It’s amazing to think Canon’s meagre EF-M catalogue of just eight lenses features only three primes, of which just one has a bright f1.4 focal ratio. The most recent EF-M 32mm f1.4 is certainly a lovely lens and as I discovered in my Canon EF-M 32mm f1.4 review, was arguably the only native EF-M lens to exploit the potential of the EOS M format, especially the higher resolution sensor introduced on the EOS M6 II.

The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | C lens for Sony E-mount and Micro Four Thirds cameras is now available for the Canon EOS M system, where it goes head-to-head with Canon’s own EF-M 32mm f/1.4. The Sigma is similarly compact and lightweight, has the same fast f/1.4 aperture rating but only costs about half as much to buy. It’s a great performer and a proper bargain at the price.

Portraiture and still life can be a struggle with a crop-sensor camera, especially if you want nice creamy bokeh, giving a sumptuous smoothness to defocused areas. With an ‘effective’ focal length of 85mm, 90mm and 112mm on Sony E, Canon M and Micro Four Thirds bodies respectively, the f/1.4 aperture rating of this Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN | C lens gives you full control over depth of field, at a very competitive price.
