Re: Oly 17mm 1.8, Oly 25mm 1.8 or the sigma 19mm?

The Sigma 19mm is a fairly good value. AF operation is fast and silent. Build quality of both the old and new version is more than goof enough for its cost. Its only weakness is an average amount of chromatic aberration. And I found the 2.8 aperture can't keep up for indoors shooting.

IMO if you're eyeing a wider than normal lens, the best thing you can do is wait a few weeks until the 15mm Panasonic Leica is released, because it appears to be nicest wide lens yet.
