µ43 for Photographic Beginners Part 5: Sigma 60mm f2.8 A
How announced in my earlier posts the next lens to review was the 60mm f2.8. This lens is by fare the best of the Sigma Art series on the µ43 mount.
It was the most expensive Sigma lens, but the costs are relative: I paid 179€ which is very reasonable..
First to the build quality and scope of supply: As the other 2 Art lenses the 60mm comes with a lens hood, feels pretty solid but it is noisy when the lens is not mounted on a camera and the camera is switched of. But this is nothing to worry about - as I have learned from the 2 Sigma Art lenses I tested before.
I was astonished about the image quality:
Today I took this little lens on a little walk just around the house to make some shots. These shots are all handheld. I applied my standard development setting in aperture - and thats it.
For me always the first test: CA: Do you see any? I did not...
Sharpness as well as bokeh are really nice, or? And this photo was shot on December 5th 2015...
Here it is the color rendering which is amazing... even if it looks pretty black and white...
This photo show a bit of the limitation of f2.8 in the µ43 world. f 1.4 in full frame is a different story...
The amount of detail shown in this shot, really sharp....
First of all: The Sigma 60mm is a damned good lens! It is fun to use it. And it found its way into my heart. It is a lens which is easy to carry around: In comparisons to the other two Sigma lenses this one will be with me pretty often. But it is hard:
Therefore: this lens will join my bag pretty often in the future. We will see.
Well, I have now bought and tested 4 Lenses:
The next step will be a comparison of the 3 Sigma Lenses but there will be more:
All photos were shot with the Lumix G7 this time.
