Sigma f/1.4 30mm DC DN | Contemporary

Sigma has issued a notice to owners of its f/1.4 30mm DC DN | Contemporary lens.

On its website, Sigma says the Micro Four Thirds lens doesn’t properly correct geometric distortion when shooting JPGs.

Sigma says it is working on a fix that it plans to roll out via a firmware update.

While the distortion appears in JPG images, Sigma says RAW images can be corrected via software. The amount of distortion increases as the lens gets closer to infinity.
