Page two and no one has said "5mm" yet? :)

Well spotted.
In Australia that makes it about $100 per mm for those extra 5mm.

Is there really a need to say the same thing three different times in three separate posts? . Isn't this what the Multiquote Tool is for?

I think we all got it the first time you said it. . Actually, it was said by someone else long before you posted, so I do not understand why you felt the need to say it over and over and over again. . It must be something that you think is important or something.

.

Not everyone reads every single post so I responded to those that were incorrect. You yourself stated that the Sigma had an ef-s mount in more than one post.

Yeah, I was just waiting for some smarty pants to say this. But seriously, they are almost the same so I guess the 35mm is way better optically. Dangit, I was hoping someone would tell me otherwise.

EDIT: . Darn it! This thread was up for over an hour and nobody had replied to it at all. . I go to reply, and by the time I finish doing my research and typing and formatting my post, there are already three posts that sneaked in ahead of mine. . Sheesh!

.

Here is a link to a comparison between the two lenses:
https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com …ems/898831-REG_918894-REG (external link)

It looks like the primary difference is that the 30mm is an EF-S mount that will only work on 1.6 crop factor cameras, while the 35mm is an EF mount that will work on both full frame and crop frame cameras.

It may be that the difference in optical quality is insignificant for certain types of shooting.

Instead of just taking one person's word for it, I would ask that person to cite their sources so that I could read for myself about the optical differences, and determine in what contexts these differences will most likely manifest themselves.

It may well be that for the type of shooting you do, based on the final output that you use, that the less expensive 30mm would be every bit as good a performer as the 35mm.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Comparison of one copy vs. one copy, but looks like a pretty big difference wide open:

I just bought off CL the Sigma 30 mm F 1.4 Art and have no problems with my 5D ll. What a deal, the 35mm retails for $899. Thank goodness for the info on this site.

You must mean you just bought the 35mm f/1.4 ART. The subject of this thread, the 30mm f/1.4 ART is a completely different lens designed for crop sensor cameras and costs $489.

Negative you are wrong. The Sigma 30mm F/1.4 Art operates on the FF 5dll with no problems. Repeat 30mm Art, not the 35mm Art.

Debate was over weeks ago. Agreement reached: It is not an EF-S lens, only Canon make EF-S. It is designed for crop sensors. It works well on FF.

I am well aware that it will fit on a full frame Canon DSLR since it has a standard ef-mount. Are you saying that this lens with a smaller image circle designed for an APS-C sensor does not vignette at all on a full frame camera?

No. I said works well. Well enough for Exocet 98 to buy it. It's all been said in the thread. Links with lots of examples of it being used on FF.
"Does not vignette at all" is not a requirement for everybody.

I've had several 'crop' lenses from 3rd party manufacturers. I've never seen one with an EFs mount. I'm almost certain Canon is the only company to make EFs mount lenses (or cameras for that matter). My Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 worked just fine on my 6D (sold) from 16-20mm.

I wonder where the APS-C 30mm "vignettes too" ?

ie: how much do you lose around the edges, resulting f.o.v., and is it a lot narrower than the FF 35mm would be?

It could be more of an apples to apples comparison than one would assume at first glance.
