Think you'll have to buy a black NEX to match the Sigma :)

Thanks, Olli. I have bookmarked your page. I especially like the entry about sharpness, and the preoccupation with it.

I wonder why they don't release it for Nikon and Canon crop DSLRs. Would be fun to have such a small lens available.
This is how it would look compared to the Nikon 35mm 1.8:

I just got my 35mm sigma
it's a great lens (though i still have to test it more, waiting for better weather to come)
The speed is decent and i love the autofocus ring (nice & smooth)
The box it comes in is nice too

You mean the 30mm? or the 19mm?

Thanks Dan, glad you like it. I'm in Munich at the minute and spotted a Sony SEL50 so I've now acquired that too. I think I'll be doing a short write up on that one some time next week.

the nex 50mm is great, esp for a nice bokeh and low light
the 30mm will be great for general use and the 55-210 i also acquired is for some slight telezooming of course

Thanks for your excellent review, Olli. I was one of the people who dismissed the two Sigma lenses, but only for Micro Four Thirds, and even there only because of the focal lengths, not speed or size. For Sony NEX, both lenses make good sense, especially considering their price. For MFT too, I think my initial dismissive reaction was incorrect. The 19mm may be a better choice than the Pana 20 for many people because of the AF speed, lack of noise, and most of all price. I personally find 30mm to be an odd focal length to work with on MFT, but many people enjoy it, just as many enjoyed 60mm lenses on 135 format. Overall, it's good to see Sigma bringing out these lenses. Hopefully there will be more to follow!
When Sigma announced the 19mm and 30mm lenses for M43 and NEX the forum 'experts' delivered their thoughtful and insightful verdict - 'boring' 'yawn' 'too slow' 'too big' and more in the same vein.

Didn't have people on this forum in mind (as if!). More a couple of the more 'popular' forums out there. And certainly there's a different set of issues to think about for M43.
The choice of focal lengths makes sense in the context of Sigma's plans for the DP range, but I'm hoping Sigma comes up with some more options for us in this kind of price/quality range. An affordable 24 would be very nice.
