Anyone have experience with the Sigma 19mm f/2.8 EX DN and 30mm f/2.8 EX DN for Micro Four Thirds Lens Kit From B&H?

The price seems extroadinarily inexpensive ($199 US) for a two lens set.  I have used Sigma products for my Nikon cameras and have had great results.

I have the 30mm and I am quite enthusiastic about it. To me it is comparable with the 14/2.5 which is v. sharp too. I think I will use both as my travel/street kit.

Contrary to old hat opinion here I think that 2.8 is more than adequate for GP use, because of IBIS and the sensitivity of new sensors.

Therefore if you can find them at half the price, it's the deal of the century. The 30 is a v. solid lens, also in terms of true to life colours, lack of flare, and v. limited CA.

Yep there both very good, just love the 19mm, and fully agree with the above comment about f2.8 being enough, I found fast lenses are not necessary on the street when extra depth of field matters.

I don`t own the 30mm but I will more than likely get the 60mm f2.8 at some point.
