Orient photo got one,call to check 63391035. Good luck!Hello everyone. I'm looking for above mentioned lens. Is this available in Singapore? I'm currently out of town but will be flying back to Singapore in July. If you happen to see them in shops, kindly share the shop, price (if available). Many thanks.
I did see one from the price guides. How was your copy though? Did you have to test several copies to get a good one?
Hsm is meant for fast and silent focusing. OSM is for optical stabilization. Most lens manufacturer doesn't include stabilization on 30mm. More or less they only install it in longer ones.Seems pretty good. My fren can get me a Sigma 30mm F1.4 without HSM from the States. With and without HSM, does it makes a big difference since my K-x has built in stabiliser?
Pentax mount will not have HSM (i think this is a good thing, one less thing to break). wish it had quick shift though.Seems pretty good. My fren can get me a Sigma 30mm F1.4 without HSM from the States. With and without HSM, does it makes a big difference since my K-x has built in stabiliser?
The lens is labeled the same for all mounts from their site. But looking at Sigma official site, and review from Photozone, the Pentax mount does not have HSM . I was excited when i first saw the lens from Adorama site, but then realized it didnt have HSM and QuickShift (QS would have been handy when taking videos).The pentax one also has you can go check andorame or b&h photo video both selling the pentax one with HSM...
Yup, can't use AF... but with QS, no need to switch and can AF before shooting (i'm lazy hehehe). But still, this lens seems have good potential for taking video (normal FL and thin DOF for isolation) and also for general people-shooting.Really ...:think:
anyway for video i always switch to MF before i start shooting ... as you can't use the af function while recording right ?
tried pressing the af button also does not work ...
I would be very much interested with this one Do PM me if he can get one for me. Thanks man.Who has seen this Sigma 30mm F1.4 w/o HSM? My fren can get it at about S$400 as a 2nd hand piece. Worth the $$$ since local shops are selling at more than $700 for the new version?
