I wish Sigma would support Nikon 1 with their 30 & 60mm lenses

Sigma makes 3 really fine, excellent value prime lenses for the Sony APS-C and Micro 4/3 mounts,  a 19mm f2.8, a 30mm f2.8, and a 60mm f2.8.

Now it's true that the 19mm lens would not add anything that the Nikon 18.5mm lens doesn't already provide (as it's bigger, slower, and not any cheaper than the 18.5mm Nikkor), but the 30mm and 60mm lenses would, IMHO, be very useful adjuncts to the Nikon 1 system.  The 30mm would provide a slower but MUCH cheaper alternative to the 32mm f1.2 lens, and the 60mm would provide a very useful, reasonably fast medium telephoto lens that also takes very well to extension tubes and diopters for close-up work.  The 60mm is also legendarily sharp, and only sells for a bit over $200.  It would be a really fine addition to this system.
