Is there someone out there who has changed your sigma 30 to an 19mm? I have a 50mm but no wideangle. Is the 19mm something to consider?

if you think the field of view is not wide enough with the 30mm you might consider getting the 19mm. the 19 is not as sharp but is great enough...with wider view. I have both and each has a good use for my style of shooting pics.

The myth of the 19 mm Sigma being inferior to the 30 is specific to this forum only. I have both models, and I am an early purchaser of the 19. Roger Cicala reviewed these lenses along with the m43 versions and found them all to be remarkably equal in MFT.

I, too, have both the Sigma 19 mm and the 30 mm and I find them to be equally sharp.  If I had to choose one over the other, I would probably choose the 19 mm to cover those occasions where wider angle is necessary.

God gave us an incredible world. See it, hear it, Touch it, taste it, smell it, PHOTOGRAPH IT!
