Thank you so much for your reply. Yeah i was planning on using my lens at bars/concert. i was planning on getting the SEL50F18 and one sigma lens. Which sigma lens would be less redundant? Thanks

Hmm. They're all pretty different. swixtwix does a good job describing what each is good for in his post here:


I don't think there is any redundancy with the three lenses (and I've got dibs at my dealer on the SEL50F18 to complete this trio), but if you had to choose one of the Sigmas... the 19mm is obviously farther removed from the SEL50F18. But I can't really comment on it as I have yet had the opportunity to put my copy through the paces. I think the word-on-the-street is that the 19 is great, but not quite to the level of the 30.
