Re: Sigma 30mm?

I've owned 3 Nex cameras, all with the kit lens. The first two, silver colored, were beautifully constructed, but only fair optically. The corners were soft. The last which was black was of much higher image quality with much sharper corners. Perhaps there is better manufacturing control for the black lens, or perhaps I just happened to get a good copy. None matched the image quality of the Canon kit lens, although the construction of the Canon lens was much less impressive.
