28Apr Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM Micro Four Thirds Lens?

As I continue to research micro 4/3 lens options I was surprised to find that the Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens comes in a micro 4/3 mount. The 30mm f1.4 lens was original designed for APS-C size sensors cameras. It’s a great little lens for the price but it is a little soft in the corners and produces […]

30Aug Rokinon 35mm f1.4 Review video

The Rokinon 35mm f1.4 lens can be found under the name Samyang as well as Bower and Vivitar. Basically all of these lenses have the same component parts with slightly different branding. Regardless of which brand you pick, this 35mm f1.4 lens was designed as a less expensive alternative to other 35mm offerings on the […]

22Aug Voigtlander 40mm f2.0 Ultron SL-II review video

The Voigtlander 40mm f2.0 Ultron SL-II lens is sort of an odd ball. It’s manual focus with electronically controlled aperture, all metal build, and the “close-up” attachment are interesting and strange features. Over all I enjoyed this lens, but its not an item for everyone. At $199 the Canon 40mm f2.8 could be considered a […]

20Aug Rokinon 35mm f1.4 – First Impressions

The Rokinon 35mm f1.4 showed up this morning. If the brand Rokinon doesn’t sound familiar, you might have seen it under the label Bower or Samyang but all of them are basically the same lens with slightly different branding. At a price of less then $500, it was designed to be a less expensive alternative to the Canon 35mm f1.4 L and a step […]

02Jul Crop sensor EF-S lens on a full frame body, Vignetting with the Sigma 30mm f1.4

More from the new DSLR FILM NOOB Channel. The labeling of a crop sensor lens can be confusing. The Sigma 30mm f1.4 for example is labeled as a 30mm lens, but since it’s really only designed to work on a crop sensor camera, it has an equivelent focal length of 48mm (1.6 times 30). So […]

18Mar Okii USB Follow focus + the Sigma 30mm f1.4.

Carlos Calika wrote in: I’m a Portuguese filmmaker, and I’m very interested in the Okii usb Follow focus. Does the Sigma 30mm f1.4 perform well with the Okii follow focus? I’ve been meaning to test every lens in my collection with the Okii follow focus so this was a good excuse to put another lens […]

26Feb Want a 35mm f1.4 for less, try A Nikon Nikkor + adapter combo.

The Canon 35mm f1.4 and Sigma 30mm f1.4 are great options. But what if you want to spend even less money? Well then you might want to consider an old Manual focus lens like the Nikon Nikkor 35mm f1.4. If you are willing to put up with bidding and waiting, this lens sometimes sells for […]

24Feb Canon 35mm f1.4 v.s. Sigma 30mm f1.4 head to head Compairson

I recommend the Sigma 30mm f1.4 quit a bit, but it always seems like when i do, the first response I get is “what about (insert lens here)”.  Many people aren’t very comfortable with 3rd party lenses or they feel like Canon is the only brand for them. Most of my lenses are canon, but there […]
