Hi Friends,
Yesterday I saw an ad in Craiglist- Sigma 30mm f1.4 non art version for sale for $240.. as the seller highlighted it is 2 years old, no box or hood.. moving to Full Frame is it worth?
I thought to check before I make a move.

it will vignette on full frame but that's a reasonable price, maybe offer a little less after you check it out

That lens is designed for a crop sensor. It will mount on a full frame body (unlike Canon's EF-S lenses), but it will vignette quite a bit.

If you are interested in that focal length for a full frame body, Canon makes a EF 28mm f/1.8. It is an older lens, but still is decent. I originally purchased the 28 f/1.8 to use on a crop 7D, but tried it a few times after purchasing a 5D3. It worked well, but I didn't have much use for a fast wide angle prime lens so I ended up selling it.

Wait is the seller moving to FF or is the OP/buyer moving to FF?

Good question. I originally read it as the the OP was moving to full frame, but upon re-reading the post, it could be interpreted either way.

What's the verdict? to go or not to go?
I just spoke 2 the seller and he says max he would go for is $230 since I had mentioned that there was no box and no hood. and agreed to go for the lowest price which is $230.

I'd buy it in a second if I could test it on my camera before handing money over. I wouldn't buy it unless I could.

X2. Try it out first as that lens is notorious for focus issues. I had that lens on my Rebel XS (1000D) and my current T4i with no issues. Was on my body most of the time, loved the lens.

no flash exif is with the pic (f2.2 30mm 800 ISO)

Very nice lens. I think, most of them need to go to sigma repair center for focus calibration. If you have MFA, probably that is fine. I got it fixed mine from Sigma.
