Sigma 19mm
ISO 200, F2.8, 1/8000sec, taken on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7. Converted from Raw ‘to taste’. At 38mm equivalent on an M43 camera, the Sigma 19mm is a nice focal length for everyday shooting – not too wide, not too long. On a Sony E-mount camera, 19mm becomes 28mm.
Sigma 19mm1
ISO 800, F5.6, 1/2000sec, taken on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7. Converted from Raw ‘to taste’. At F5.6, this low-level grab shot is sharp from edge to edge.

30 mm_copy-processed

ISO 200, F2.8, 1/5000sec, taken on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7. Raw file adjusted ‘to taste’. Taken on a Micro Four Thirds camera, this lens offers an equivalent focal length of 60mm, which fits just between what we normally think of as a ‘standard’ (~50mm) and short tele focal range. The Sony E-Mount version is equivalent to a 45mm prime. As you can see, sharpness is excellent wide open, even towards the edge of the (Micro Four Thirds) frame.

ISO 400, f/2.8, 1/640sec taken on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3. Raw file adjusted ‘to taste’. This is another shot which demonstrates the excellent sharpness of the 30mm F2.8 wide open. CA is also very well controlled. Check out the original Raw file to make your own adjustments.

60mm_copy-processed

ISO 100, F/4.5, 1/800sec taken on Sony a6000, converted from Raw ‘to taste’. This image demonstrates the excellent edge-to-edge sharpness of the 60mm F2.8, even when mounted on a Sony APS-C camera.
Sigma 60mm

ISO 400, F2.8, 1/320sec, taken on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4. Converted from Raw ‘to taste’. At wide apertures, bokeh is quite attractive from this 60mm prime. At 120mm equivalent on the M43 system or 90mm on Sony E-mount, this lens makes a lot of sense for portraiture.

The writer says:

I’ve enjoyed using them very much, and enjoyed their compact dimensions that make them pocket lenses rather than camera bag lenses, and I’m very pleased with some of the pictures that I’ve taken with them.

They are good, small, light-weight and, at their current price, will make lots of photographers very happy indeed.”
