My wife and I are going on a week cruise and four day stay in Barcelona in June. I am thinking of getting a prime lens for my Epl2 for the travel. Photography will be mostly landscape, architectural, steetscscape and others. My choices are the 19 mm and the 30 mm Sigma lenses and the new Olympus 25mm f1.8 . Any advice?

Get a 17mm.

In New York a 25mm is great. In the narrow streets of Europe, 17mm is the way to go.

I was in Paris last summer and juggled between a too wide 12mm and too narrow 25mm. For my next trip, to Marseille and Genoa, I picked up a 17.5mm and used it for nearly half my shots.
