Review Round-up: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary

I picked up the new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens for Sony E-mount about a month ago (indeed, it was a part of the impetus to start this blog), and have been generally pleased with it for my needs and usage.  I have done some general testing with an eye toward writing a review of the lens as used on my Sony a6000.  But I haven’t gotten everything together for that review yet.

Nevertheless, as a number of reviewers have already put together some good written and video reviews of the lens, so I thought I might compile as many as I could find here for your reading and viewing pleasure.  Here’s what I’ve found so far.

… and you’ll likely find a bunch more AF tests, hands-on looks, unboxings, and sample videos using the Sigma 30/1.4 DC DN, and so on, for the lens once you start viewing one of the above on YouTube.

And one day, perhaps I’ll finish and post my own review of this nice new lens for the Sony E-mount mirrorless system (and also available for Micro Four-Thirds mounts as well).
