You can't get this lens brand new anywhere cheaper in UK with 2 year warranty.
I've been monitoring the prices of this lens for a little while.
It's an absolute beast of the lens for APS-C Mirrorless Sony Cameras.
Extremely Sharp "corner to corner", fast with maximum aparture of f1.4!
Critically acclaimed as a best most verstile prime lens for sony alpha mirrorless cameras.
Got this one 3 months ago for 329.99 after rebates and it's just a fantastic lens for photo and video.
You can't go wrong.

I got this 16mm and 30mm both good but I find 30mm better choice for my need. Also smaller than 16mm.

16mm is never and far more advanced than 30mm even though these are same family.
I do have them both also. 30mm RPP is far cheaper for a reason.

@Mike_HUKD I don't think links to the shady HK tax doging companies are allowed here anymore.
the warranty part of your post I'll take as a comic relief.

I agree but the price of a 30mm will always be cheaper than a 16mm just because of the size and extra glass needed but yes the 16mm is the better lens including faster auto focus

Great lens which i regret not getting and went for the Zeiss 24mm f1.8, don't get me wrong that lens is great but the odd time I feel I need a wider lens I wish i got this instead.
Great price and anyone buying wont be disappointed, Heat.

Amazingly fast!
I`m very surprised there is no lens hood, the front element is so exposed, flare could easily be a problem at open aperture
It`s a pity it`s aps-c

there is a lens hood. its not on the listing description but the all sigma lenses comes with lens hood. It's a brand new item so it's inside the box.

It cost more because its using more glass and more complicated to make the wider lens.

Picture quality wise I don't see any different between 16mm and 30mm.
I'm using it 50% indoor 50% outdoor with kids on my a6500. I find 30mm more practical than 16mm. 16mm you have to be close to subject than 30mm.
30mm easier for travel (lighter) and almost half in size compare to 30mm.

Only positive thing I found with 16mm is you can use it in really tight space but then it makes faces funny which needs to be corrected in light room after.

30mm stays 90% of the times on my camera. I'm planning to sell the 16mm also 35mm 1.7f sony and get a telezoom lens.

If you are a vblogger/youtuber then 16mm might be good choice because you are close to the camera.

I would say both are good lens but end of the day its all depends on what kind/need of photos you take. For my need I find 16mm more suitable than 16mm and Sony 35mm.

It's same spec.. 1.4f. Technically both should be same speed for auto focus. Maybe it depends on which camera you use it on. On my a6500 I don't find 16mm to be faster to auto focus.
guys.. arguing if 16mm is better than 30mm without giving a context is like comparing fork and spoon... it depends what you gonna have for dinner.

The best 24mm lens available for any full frame is Sony's stunning 24mm F1.4 GM lens but it costs a stunning price too £1,399.00

Sigma equivalent for full frame - Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens - £539 as an import. Sharp but big and heavy.

Tamron do a new 24mm, the -Tamron 24mm f2.8 Di III - compact and light but F2.8 and large filter thread (67mm)

Tamron’s other new zoom the 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD is a good alternative for wide angle shooters covering all bases, would be my choice for versatility, £669 as an import.

99% of the instagram landscape photographers and vlogers uses 16mm f1.4 that's why they name this lens as a best allrounder.
30mm gives more true to life view from the pictures.

telephoto is nice and I do have 18-105 but it's not giving me that spectacular bokeh that's why I stick mainly to primes.
I'm selling 18-105 and I'm going with 16-55mm G which is crazy expensive but spectacularly sharp with great low light performance.

again both are great and both are great for different reasons.
16mm holds the price much better than the 30mm which is by the market considered asobsolete and subpar to sony's 1.8 counterpart with OSS. (SEL35F18)


Lack of the OSS is the biggest gripe with Sigma's.
But they are the best on the market. Sigma trio is the way to go, unless you want one lens to rule them all so 16-55mm

The 30mm got an update early last year that speeded its auto focus up, I have not used one with the update but I did find it was slower but that's been improved but by how much I don't know, going by the many reviews on YouTube it's faster but not quite as fast as the 16mm and 56mm sigma but yes by how much and if it would make any real world difference I have no idea think I've only read one post where someone wasn't happy with it.

without a dock is there any chance of checking the firmware ver of the lens?

These on a sony should work in camera from what I remember, I think you connect camera to a laptop or PC with lens on
If you type Sigma 30mm f1.4 emount firmware update in YouTube I'm sure you'd find a video talking you through it
