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.

I haven't see any chromatic aberration so far - other than that little all m4/3 lenses have.

As for indoors shooting the claim relents of the amateur. When you have ISO 3200 + IBIS one must be really clumsy not to get a shot in good light. Or else, if it's bad, learn speedlights, which give more control than everything else, and are never short of LIGHT.

There is a considerable waste of money made on lenses  in this forum, where the pecking order is laughable, because the basics are ignored.
