Sigma 30mm 1.4 | Very first impressions.

From Sigma-photo.comA couple of days ago I got my hands on the new 30mm 1.4 EX from Sigma. A lens that me myself and I have been looking forward to a lot. And now when I have it I must tell you, I’m sold, in love!It’s a well built, pretty small, good looking piece of glass that behaves as you which it would. (most of the time, more of that later) Here comes the first teaser image. A 100% crop taken with auto focus and @ F1.4. (Wide open)full image, 100% crop.full image, resized.My first impressions on image quality is as follows: sharp, saturated, contrasty and very very nice bokeh. There is some distortion but I’ll get back to that later. Right now I’ll use it for some up’n’coming projects and tell you more as time goes by.Photo has been processed using Adobe Lightroom beta 2, no sharpening applied in lightroom (does a very bad job) but normal amount applied in PS.Over at Dpreview I’ve posted some more images and thoughs. Take me there!Link to edge sharpness test and my first studio shots: Take me there!
