    Very impressed with the color rendering and sharpness of Sigma and this lens is no exception. The AF isn't as accurate or fast as the 50mm 1.8 oss but am happy with the swap because it's sharp as tack shooting at 1.4

    Short and sweet: I believe this lens is good for any beginner, intermediate, or professional photographer. Very crisp picture quality, vivid colors. Only downside is the lens does not have any form of stabilization. This lens is great for photo, and if you have a camera gimbal, this can also be very great for video; camera in-body stabilization wouldn't be enough to produce smooth videos.

    great everyday walk around lens. With the crop fact you get the equivalent of a 50mm lens.

    Haven't used it as much as I would have liked. I was able to only use one time. Took about 40 pictures. Was very satisfied with the results I got from this lens. Auto focus is great, the sharpness is great. So far so good

    This lens is very sharp and takes great pictures (when paired with the right photographer). The Sony A6x00 series cameras make great use of this lens to focus quickly with minimal barrel distortion. This is a 45mm Prime equivalent when paired with the APSc sensor. It's a bit longer than the kit lens, but nicer in all other respects. Due to the 24M sensor on the A6000, it can be used in nearly every situation as you can crop 50% of the image and still get a nice, detailed image for an 8x10 print. It has a 52mm filter thread, a little larger than the kit lenses, but comparable to many 35mm lenses you may have sitting around. At 1.4, it's still fast, but focusing is a bit less accurate. 2.0 will give you nice background blur while still being easy to use without manual focus. The metal and plastic body look like it's made to last. I hope to be enjoying this lens for years to come.

    I highly recommend getting away from the lenses that come with your camera. The additional performance with the better optical stabilization is highly recommended for the least amount of blur.

    I purchased this lens as a replacement for the kit lens. I also have the 55-210 sony telephoto lens. This 30mm lens has a solid build quality, is east to use, and can make for great, clear pictures.

    I purchased this lens to accompany my Sony a6000, and it pairs beautifully with the Sony e-mount system. Autofocus is very fast - not quite as fast as a native Sony lens. I am thrilled with the dreamy bokeh and soft backgrounds that I can achieve with this lens.

    With the first frame, I knew this is going to be the sharpest lens I have for my A6000. I was blown away with the IQ and fast focus in low light. You won't be disappointed.

    Earlier copies of this lens have been faulted for having slightly slow focus, Simga seems to have completely worked out these issues. The lens focuses extremely fast for both photography and video applications. Of course the lens is exceptionally sharp, even wide open. I had some reservations about the focal length of 30mm which is equivalent to 45mm on a Sony full frame camera, which is quite close to 50mm. It's difficult to explain, but I find the focal length very versatile, perhaps even slightly more than a standard 50mm on a full frame camera.

    It has great auto focus speed and charity. Very sharp and fast. The size is small and compliments the Sony a6500 I use it on. Great to use on a gimbal. Great low light focus.

    If you want a sharp lens along with a large aperture for your Sony APS-C camera, then the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens is an outstanding option. There are full frame lens choices that will do as well as the Sigma lens, but those lenses cost more and weigh considerably more. I am using the Sigma 30mm on a Sony a6500. It makes for a great low light combination and a pretty good portrait lens. The focusing with the a6500 works well. I have used it for action shots and its continuous focus tracking does a good, if not excellent, job. For still shots the focusing is spectacular even in low light. Optically, wow! It reminds me of the Sigma full frame Art lenses. Great lens at a reasonable price. The only thing missing is optical stabilization, if your camera does not have IBIS.
