This large-aperture standard digital SLR camera lens is in APS-C format, making it ideal for many different types of photographic expression.
Offering the highest level of image quality, this large-aperture F1.4 standard lens stimulates the desire to create.
SIGMA pioneered the large-aperture APS-C format standard lens category with its famous 30mm F1.4 lens. Now that we have reorganized all our lenses into three product lines, we are proud to introduce the fully updated 30mm F1.4 DC HSM, which offers an angle of view equivalent to 45mm on a 35mm camera. Offering an angle of view and sense of perspective extremely close to that of human vision, this lens stimulates the desire to create and is ideal for many different types of photographic expression. It is a superb go-to lens for artistic photography. Featuring an advanced design and the latest manufacturing technologies, this lens delivers the highest level of image quality.
High resolution and outstanding photographic expression
Minimal aberration combined with beautiful bokeh effects at large-aperture settings.
Thanks to their easy-to-use angle of view, standard lenses allow photographers to express themselves fully. The 30mm F1.4 DC HSM leverages superior optical performance to offer outstanding expressive power at a wide range of focusing distances.
Optimized power distribution minimizes curvature of field, thereby preventing a loss of image quality at the edges of photographs. The use of a double aspheric lens minimizes spherical distortion, astigmatism and coma. Coma of point light sources is minimized near the edge of the image, and an attractive round bokeh effect is produced at large-aperture settings.

A large-aperture F1.4 standard lens to please any photographer
A large-aperture lens with minimal optic aberration and superb peripheral resolution.
In 2005, SIGMA introduced the SIGMA 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM large-aperture APS-C format standard lens. Having reorganized its lenses into three product lines, SIGMA created the 30mm F1.4 DC HSM large-aperture APS-C format standard digital SLR camera lens for the Art line. Like other Art lenses, it offers exceptional optical performance throughout the image. Highly versatile, it lets the photographer use distance from the subject and aperture to achieve many different styles of photographic expression. For example, the photographer can leverage the shallow depth of field that creates beautiful bokeh for snap shots, portraits, and landscapes, and many different styles of photography.

UPDATE: Not fantastic. Dropping from 5 to 3 stars.
I shot 4 weddings using this lens and found that while the f1.4 aperture did indeed give me more light and throw my background way out of focus, there is almost no sharpness to speak of until you stop down to about 1.8. For portraiture, the lens is fine. I didn't get unusable shots at 1.4, but I was just much more pleased working in the 1.8 range on this lens. I also tested this lens outdoors with night sky photography and this is where the lens really disappoints. I tested some shots wide open and the chromtaic aberration and coma issues are bad enough to give me completely unusable images. Only the very center of the images would be sharp. Soft corners ended up being large areas of coma. The chromatic aberration was so bad that I had to actually push the limits in Lightrooms manual adjustments for fringing until I was able to correct the majority of it - but if anyone has every needed to go that far, they'd know that at that point you're really making compromises. Do not buy this lens for astro work. I had only gotten satisfactory image quality at f/2.8 and for that, you can buy much cheaper lenses and still get better results. But, for basically anything else, the lens will be fine. Many of my clients favorite images came from this lens because of what that 1.4 aperture can do. They just dont nitpick the intricate image quality things like photographers do, so take that as you will. And for what it's worth, I also bought the Sigma 50mm Art for full frame on my D810 and it produces significantly sharper images at f/1.4 than this does.
I bought this lens to help my wide open arsenal for indoor shots with wedding photography. This should help me get those dreamy shots with smoothly blurred backgrounds and beautiful light with how wide the aperture is. Upon opening the box (bought used, but looks mint) I notice firstly the sturdy build. It feels solid. Doesn't feel like lightweight plastics being used. The front element glass is small and overall, the lens isn't too long at all, though a bit wide, as a 1.4 lens typically may be. It's not too heavy to hold for a couple hours. It seems to focus pretty snappy and accuratlely back and forth without hesitation. I need to run it through some tests, but upon first BOC looks, it appears sharp and clean. For an APS-C lens, this is a steal. Owning the D500, I knew I'd always have a crop sensor body on hand, so I saved a good chunk of change by not going with the 35mm and sticking to this guy to drop on the D500 and I think I made the right choice. we shall see.
