This is a fabulous inexpensive lens for available light photography! Here are 2 galleries of mine taken mostly with this lens and my Nik.D40(x)

I'm using this lens on a Rebel xti. I have no problems whatsoever with focusing. I find this lens to be extremely sharp and it has become one of my most used lenses. I am very happy with it.

I'm using this lens on a D200 and have no problems with focusing - I know some report back or front focusing. If I have an issue, however, it's with the exposure calibration. It consistently overexposes by +0.7ev. This issue is also reported by Ken Rockwell As a Nikon D200 owner it's one of the few options to achieve a shallow DOF: If I could afford it I'd rather have a Canon 5d with a 50mm f1.2

Impressive sharp lens. Some examples check my gallery:

This 30mm is a good and versatile lens. Brilliant, sharp, a bit warm and very usable even at high aperture. The bokeh is not a lot but creamy and the colors are compact in the background. For me is extremely good for close-up portraits or for any use as a standard lens. The autofocus is simply amazing: fast and precise.

The price difference between the Sigma and say, the Nikkor 28mm f/1.4 quickly puts the capabilities and value of this lens into perspective :>

There's nothing wrong with the bokeh (my, how I hate that word) of this lens. Annoyed by the suggestion, I dashed outside and shot some quick pics to demonstrate. They're here:

Lot of people talk about bokeh as a sign of sophistication, but unfortunately, few know what bokeh is. They should search and learn first, or else their comments only show ignorance.
Guest 27-Mar-2006 06:18
Well this lens was recommended to me on dpreview-so I came to chek out some images-
I will NEVER buy this lens-the bokeh is trerrible -it should be a lot more at f/1.4
My 17-40 4L makes better bokeh at f/4-this lens loosk very disappointing..
sorry to rain on it..

No trouble with the autofocus here. I think it's a brilliant lens. It's true what they say about it being pretty sharp, at least in the centre, at 1.4.

I shot a band in very low stage lighting with it:
Of course they were jumping about like dervishes so there's still a fair bit of blur, but the keeper rate was astonishing.

Wonderful lens, very fast and great for night shots, though the auto focus is kind of weird, yet I would say this is a MUST have lens :)

3) Nice fit and finish
4) Colors are warm to hot
5) I am very happy with this lens....
Guest 01-Aug-2005 19:33
hey, let's post some samples! ! ! ! !
Guest 29-Jul-2005 05:20
... err, nevermind. Two days after I gave up on the lens ever shipping (several months waiting), I finally received mine in the mail.

I'm beginning to wonder if this lens is nothing but vaporware.
