Sigma 19mm vs 30mm...if you could only have one of them...
Jun 6, 2012

So I'm considering the Sigma 30mm, but I'm wondering why I wouldn't opt for the extra image space the 19mm would afford me.

I want the extra speed (2.8 vs the slower kit lens) for indoor shots and want to capture more people at the table than my 50mm f1.8 allows.

30mm gets tremendous reviews for it's wide open sharpness, how does that compare against the 19mm? I see some say the 19mm is as good, or at least close. If that's truly the case, why wouldn't I want the extra "roominess" of the 19mm?

Anyone know of a good cache of images comparing the 19mm to the 30mm I can review?

Looking for fresh opinions....thanks!
