  • Nikkor 35mm F/2 vs Sigma 30mm F/1.4 HSM

    hmmm....

    I've seen DPNikon's 35mm and it's not bad....

    but I wonder how is it when pitted against the Sigma 30mm HSM?

    opinions/comments appreciated.

    Paiseh paiseh...

    The Sigma 30mm HSM lens is not completely quiet. It is big and fat, Have the feel of Nikon 50mm F1.2 lens. Built quality is pretty nice, with EX finishing.

    Image quality I dont know...but at F1.4...it is actually very hard for you to get sharp focus (I have the Nikon 35mm F1.4 before).

    The Nikon AFD 35mm F2 is a very good lens. For wide angle lens, focusing is short and fast, so you do not need to think of HSM advantage. Nikon 35mm F2 is pretty compact, good for you to bring around/travel easily.

        Big and fat comes from the large big fat f/1.4 glass.

        But you're saying the HSM is not completely quiet?

        AF and MF different mah. Manual focusing on a f/1.4 is sure difficult. Likewise, AF at f/1.4 can be very tricky too when the camera easily gets fooled.

        The Nikon AFD 35mm F2 is a very good lens. For wide angle lens, focusing is short and fast, so you do not need to think of HSM advantage. Nikon 35mm F2 is pretty compact, good for you to bring around/travel easily.
        Yes, but like the Sigma, the Nikon needs to be stopped down for excellent sharpness quality. The Nikkor is not a f/1.4 but the Nikkor is more consistant in it's performance.

        I finally found a link after searching on some testing done with both lenses. You can read it up here;

        Read the write ups there. Pretty interesting read.

            As Ykgen agreed after trying my Nikkor 35mm, the focusing is almost always spot on with the Nikkor.

                      probably due to sigma's sensitive DOF..
