Thanks for the replies. Just wondering what is the reason for buying the 19 or 30 if they aren't very sharp across the frame, and aren't extremely bright, vs. a nice kit zoom for the same price? A little bit more bokeh at 2.8? is that all?

Because its sharp enough across the frame not that I have particularity noticed any softness, if you want to go by reviews, firstly check out 4 or 5 before coming to any conclusion, its certainly on par with most kit lenses, if anything better and at 19mm its a stop or so faster.
