Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM

113_small
Review Date: Oct 7, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Smooth bookeh (/1.4) Sharp Solid build Price Fast
Cons:
Hood Focus-ring Not everyone can get it for free like me

I got this with my Nikon D300 when I bought it for literally no cash.

I really love this lens in so many aspects
it's fast
it's sharp
it's dreamy bookeh
in low-light conditions

However, the hood is crap it's got a huge plastic-feel to it plus that it falls off very easily after several times screwed on/off.
The focus-ring isn't that bad, but neither that good.

9.0 overall:
As of a 30mm /1.4 you can't expect more to almost no money.

8.0 build quality:
It feels solid and metalish, however, the hood is a big negative aspect in my opinion.

10.0 price rating:
For the money, you'll be very happy and surprised!

Highly recommended for a semi-pro Nikon-body!
