 The 19 2.8 even comes with a lens hood, unlike some other m43 lensmakers who I can think of.

The 30mm (newer version) also now comes with a hood.  They also both come with soft padded cases.  Hard to find fault here with build quality, packaging, or optics.  The autofocus speed is about as fast and quiet as the Olympus MSC 14-42 II.  And the size is just right, they look great on my E-PL2. The only place it seems they "skimped" was in making it f2.8 rather than f2.0 or faster.
