Sigma 19 or 30 for Landscapes
Apr 10, 2013

So I know the easy answer is "both". But I'm more curious if it's even worth either lens for landscape photos.

I am going to Yellowstone and then climbing the Grand Teton in June. I plan to bring my Nex 6 with me and thought one of these primes might be a nice, lost cost addition to my 16-50 kit lens and the SEL55-210 I have.

There have been a lot of posts lately about the 19 and 30 and I like the results I've seen. I just don't know if the 1 stop improvement over the kit lens is worth it. For the $150 for one of those lenses I could probably get a legacy manual lens off ebay and an adapter.

Just thinking out loud here. Any advice is appreciated.
