I can show you photos that are as good, or better, taken with a micro43 camera or an LX3.

So... what's your point?

Finally! Someone's challenging the OP's ridiculous statement! I couldn't believe how he called the 5n "the best social camera ever, certainly better than any m4/3 camera or the LX3." And when he said that no equipment on the planet could produce photos as good as the ones he posted? Astonishing.

Curious. Where did he write that? I haven't found it in this thread.

The way I look at it, he took his 5N and Sigma 30mm to a social gathering and it performed to his liking.

Aww...none of the images show up for me.

But I did just order this EXACT combo online earlier today! I'm greatly looking forward to it...especially since it'll be here before New Years, which will be the first time I take it for a spin.

Yeah, seriously old thread. I've since canned all of my photos on DPR. But I'll re-link to my Flickr.

But these days, I believe the SEL35F18 (and the SEL50F18) is the hot setup for social photography. I've gotten some amazing stuff with the SEL50F18 that even as too-long as it is, it's what I take now for social photography. I will acquire the SEL35F18 soon and confirm, but I think people have already confirmed what a great low-light lens it is.

But the Sigma 30mm EX DN is still terrific, just no longer the preferred setup for this specific application.
