The two were designed for APS-C format cameras and adapted to m4/3. So the 30mm is into the no man's land between normal and portrait and the 19mm isn't quite the street wide they would be on a APS-C sensor.

Well, that's a matter of taste and preference.

Lots of people used and liked long(ish) normals rather than wide(ish) normals, witness the popularity of 57/58mm classic designs for 35mm cameras. Of course there was a place for 40/45mm too, so I think the 30mm choice of focal length is no accident; it covers both camps depending on which camera system you use.

Similarly the 19mm hits two sweet spots depending on the format: 40mm-ish on micro 4/3, 28mm-ish on the NEX. Another intelligent choice by Sigma.
