I had both, end up keeping the 19mm, because of Landscape

I have both, and I loved them both.  But between the two, I endup keeping the S19:

1. There is no Good Landscape Prime for Sony aside from CZ-24mm, and that is $1200

2. Sony 16mm is extremely soft, not worth its money

3. the same can be said for 16-50 soft corners and extreme vignetting

4. Sony 50mm f/1.8 make a better Portrait prime than Sigma 30/2.8

5. 30mm is too tight for decent landscape, yet kind of too wide for portrait too

Anyhow, I think a Sigma 19mm + Sony 50mm f/1.8 is the ultimate "DUAL LENS" setup.
