5D + Sigma 30mm 1.4

I can’t believe I hadn’t tried this until now. Dad has had his 5D for a week longer than I have had the 40D now and I’ve had the Sigma 30mm 1.4 for nearly as long. Anyway, last night I decided to see how bad the vignetting would be from the lens on a full frame camera. So I grabbed the 5D and fired off a couple of shots.

First thing I noticed was not the vignetting but the colours and the DOF. Could not believe just how different the images from the lens looked on the different camera. The bokeh was a million times smoother and the colours, oh how I could go on all day about the colours. But I will just say, they are awesome as far as I am concerned. Sure, there is that nasty and rather obvious vignetting but eh, it is still a usable, fast 30mm lens.

I also tried to see how close I could get a shot using it with the 40D and well, its almost there, but at the same time, no where near in my opinion.

And a few more from just the 5D…
