Re: 30mm vs 18-55mm, 20-50mm, 20mm or...

I agree with the posts above suggesting the 12-24, I recently purchased mine and although I haven't haven't had it very long, I'm very much liking it so far. I also have the 16mm and I think if I'd been able to buy the 12-24 earlier, I would not have bothered buying the 16mm.

(Which is not to say the 16mm is bad, just that I think the 12-24 sems to be as good, and I generally used the 16 stopped down so the speed doesn't matter to me.)

Unfortunately I can't compare either to the 20-50, which I don't have, or the 18-55, which I barely used before giving away, but I would have thought that in conjunction with the 30mm, you would find the 12-24 more useful..
