NEX-6 & lense questions

I just ordered a NEX-6 with 16-50mm kit plus a SEL5018. I'm planning to use the 16-50 as a general all purpose lens and the 50mm for portraits and low light situations. In general I like to shoot in RAW and then use Lightroom to manage my library and make adjustments when needed.

I have few questions I wanted to ask current NEX users:

- I read about the in camera lens correction option when using Sony lenses. As I said, I will be using Lighroom with RAW files most of the times. The last version of LR supports the NEX-6 and SEL lenses profiles. Should I disable the built-in lens correction and let LR handle it or do you think that the in camera option is more suited?

- I can get the Sigma 19mm 2.8 and the 30mm 2.8 at $119 each. At that price I'm very tempted to get one of them. Do you think it would be redundant, considering I have the 16-50mm?

- I didn't find many review or opinions on the 55-210mm. Is it comparable to the 16-50 in terms of picture quality and overall performance?

Thanks in advance for the advice.
