The 19 has a reputation on this forum as being an inferior lens, which it definitely is not. It actually scores nearly as highly in all respects as the Sigma 30 on Roger Cicala's GREAt Imatests at Lens Rentals. It's only lower I believe because wide lenses usually DO test lower. The 19's comes with a reversible hood which I use to conceal the Pana. 46mm G lens Fisheye adapter. This actually ends up getting me a UWA effect, not fisheye.
