Re: Sigma 30mm or Sony 16mm?

Yeah, seriously old thread. I've since canned all of my photos on DPR. But I'll re-link to my Flickr.

But these days, I believe the SEL35F18 (and the SEL50F18) is the hot setup for social photography. I've gotten some amazing stuff with the SEL50F18 that even as too-long as it is, it's what I take now for social photography. I will acquire the SEL35F18 soon and confirm, but I think people have already confirmed what a great low-light lens it is.

But the Sigma 30mm EX DN is still terrific, just no longer the preferred setup for this specific application.
