Re: 30mm or 45mm?

30mm vs 45mm

Pros for 30mm - pancake size

Pros for 45mm - fast aperture 1.8; fast AF; pleasant bokeh

Cons for 30mm - slow AF; bokeh is harsh

Cons for 45mm - bulky

I advise you to compare Pros of 30mm vs Cons of 45mm and Pros of 45 vs Cons of 30mm. You will get a much more easy understanding.

I personally chose 45mm because I do lot of portraits and don't travel a lot. For the travel I'd choose 16mm as a second lens. But if I had to choose only one walk around lens than no doubt it would be 30mm. But if you have NX300 than 30mm is not an optimal lens because it hasn't iFn which is a must have on NX300 because it lacks the scroll wheel on the back side.
