Re: 2 Sigmas (19&30), or 20mm 1.7

I own both the 19 Sigma and 20 Panasonic, as well as EPL-1 and G3 bodies.

IMO, the 20 will be considered one of the great lenses of all time, despite reputed slow AF speed and its detractors.  It's up there with some Leica f2 Summicrons IMO and I wouldn't be surprised if Leica actually had had a hand in designing it.  Definitely, it is sharper than the 19 as well as faster.  I use the 20 on the EPL-1 but find myself using the 19 on the G3, where the feel and balance of that particular combination are just perfect for me.  I bought the 30 also, on a both for $199 Adorama deal when they were clearing out the old models for the cosmetically-only new Art models, but I've found little use for it.
