lens shootout : Nikkor 32mm vs sigma 17-70mm part 1

its actually a really unfair comparison, because the sigma is macro lens and nikon a portrait lens. the Sigma 17-70 F2.8 Macro is considered as all around lens and the nikon could considered it was well. the nikon lens 32mmF1.2 have really close focus distance for this kind of lens (which good for macro) and also smaller sensor of the nikon1 system make much less intense out of focus blurs, compared to a fullframe or APS-C sensor (which is good for landscape).
also a comparsion between DSLR Canon 500D with APS-C sensor and mirrorless Camera Nikon V1 with much smaller 1’inch Sensor is not really fair. but i will do it anyway. also need need some pictures for my upcoming sigma17-70mm F2.8 and nikkor 1 32mm F1.2 lens review.

review: sony nex 30mm macro lens

for 250-300 bucks you can get the sony macro lens for nex system. its f-stop 3.5 until 16 and is very light and well build.
the close distance is 2-3 cm and the lens give very nice bokey. lens itss pretty sharp, specially for the price. the autofocus is fast.
Exceptionally portable and versatile for everyday use. its not the fastet lens with F3.5, but otherwise there are no complains. a great lens ! its very shot review but there is nothing tell except the technical details which you can view on the web anyway.
