Re: Sigma 30mm or Sony 16mm?

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

juliusCaesar: The SEL16F28 does not have OSS. I sometimes keep that in my pocket (since it's so tiny) in addition to the Sigma 30mm in a minimalist kit-out... but I intend on replacing that configuration with the Sigma 19mm.

It needs to be noted that I actually really like that lens + UWA + fisheye adapter, and it will stay in my camera bag. It's literally indispensable for my tri-podded Urbex stuff. That said, I think it is less-than-ideal as a social lens because of its qualities wide open, which is where you're going to be at shooting hand-held in dark restaurants and bars. The SEL16F28 does not begin to shine until f/5.6, and ideally at f/8.
