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?

People justifying the 25/1.4 over the 25/1.8 keep saying that just a half stop (transmitted) should be considered a huge deal... don't really agree that much, but for many people, it is.

While I had nothing bad to say about the kit zoom, I just prefer shooting primes. Personal preference... that's all. That is probably the best reason to consider one of the Sigmas... because they are good cheap primes.
