The 50 is a really sweet portrait lens on the 7D....The 30 is a perfect standard.....They both have the same creamy Sigma bokeh..I think the 30 might be just a touch sharper in the center at 1.4....But, I'm not sure which I prefer....the 5DmkII/50/1.4 or the 7D/30/1.4.....Too close to call

I don't think the 30mm is THAT good. 30mm f1.4 is the equivalent of 50mm f2.5 on FF. So you aren't going to ever really get the look of a 50mm on FF at really fast apertures.

the 30 is very nice on crop but there is more distortion at close quarters than with a 50 on ff

I think the Sigma 30 is a great bargain for the quality it produces. It's no 35L, but I was happy to purchase one when I saw what it was capable of.

I <3 my 50L, though. Even if it is just a 50mm f/1.92 ;)

So, I guess I need a 30mm/f.75 :)
I think it's a matter of opinion though......I shot the 50mm on FF for a few years, Just saying, I'm real comfortable shooting this 30mm on the 7D....It's the closest I've come to a standard prime on the crop...I've done the 35L, and 28/1.8......I really like the 30mm FL...

These are with my 20D

There shouldn't be. You have any examples of that? Perspective distortion is caused by distance to subject, not focal length. And with the same framing, you'd be at the same distance to subject with a 30mm on APS-C as you would with a 50mm on FF.

And for the record, I love my 30mm, a ton. It is definitely the best option for a normal prime on APS-C and I am not giving mine up unless I change sensor sizes.

I got mine in Sept from Abes, it was the old finish. It looked new, but did have focus issues. I wish the other retailers would match Abes prices, I really want another

Why didn't you exchange it?

i still have mine too, it's not going anywhere
i was referring to barrel distortion... but it's only very slight

Thanks....Haven't had the lens too long....Looking forward to putting it through more paces this weekend. Truth told, I've felt a bit lost without a fast standard prime that I'm comfortable with on my 7D....I usually only use my zooms for landscapes and events, the rest of the time I mostly shoot a standard prime....

On my 7d

The Bokeh is sooo much better than the EF 28/1.8...
