I'm just doing a review of the 30mm. Bigger than the 20mm but still small. Very, very sharp. A thoroughly good lens and an amazing bargain at that price.

I haven't tried the 19mm but it seems to be as good. I already have a 20mm but if I were buying now the 2 Sigmas would be top of my list instead.

I'll confirm this assessment.  I have both Sigma lenses, and the 30 gives sharper results than the 19.  Not that the 19 is bad by any means, but the 30 is really exceptional.

As for the OP, it all comes down to speed and size.  If you need f/1.7 or a pancake lens, the decision is clear.  If you don't, the two Sigmas offer a far greater value.
