    Hi all.

    The Sigma 30 mm looks great and the quality likewise. But is it a no go for video? No OSS and handheld video?

    Please advise :)

    That's right, there no OSS on the Sigma 30mm. So unless you have very steady hands, a tripod is your friend. ;)

    Taken a few myself and no issue.

    However I am not expecting professional level video recording from my camera.

    I had the 30mm and sold it to get the SEL35 and one of the reason was for video. I mean it depends on what you expect from your videos but without OSS, is not that easy unless you do mostly static, limited movement stuff. For pics is razor sharp though .
