Thanks - tried price-matching with McBain but they told me they couldn't because $130 is waaaay below cost. Lol.

Henry's Exposure show is this weekend, they normally have some spend over x amount and save y dollars... last year was another $25 off $300, but it normally can be stacked on sale prices, useful if you are buying a few things. Not a great % off, but it would be worth waiting for as it starts on Friday and the Henry's stores normally price match the show prices.

I already have Panny 14 & 20. I wonder if its worth getting the 30. It does not seem that fast to me. Any feedback is appreciated.

I wouldn't bother. Save your money and get the 45 down the road

Personally, I have the 19mm and used it in conjunction with the 18-55mm kit lens on my NEX-3 during a trip to Italy. It's a disappointing lens IMO, particularly for traveling. While it may be compact, focus time is increased, the lack of internal vibration stabilization makes taking dusk or nighttime shots a lesson in futility without a tripod, the manual focus ring seems to grind every now and then.....and the whole thing feels cheap.

While a 19mm lens does come in handy, I find the 18-55mm kit lens does a much better job by already covering that focal length and it comes with built-in stabilization and more importantly (for travelers anyways) a zoom.

Just a FYI - Olympus m4/3 bodies have in body stablization, so the IS isn't a concern for them.

I picked up the 30mm Sigma for my Nex 5n and it works great. Autofocus is slower due to the lack of IS, but it's comparable to any other lens without IS anyways. At this price, you will never find a better lens at f2.8 with such sharpness.

It does have a cheap feel but it is much lighter than the kit lens which makes it great for everyday use.

Wow fantastic price. Would 30mm be ideal for portraits or is that more like 45mm?

Thank-you for the detailed feedback. I have been considering these lenses for my NEX-5N and your comments have convinced me otherwise.

Just FYI, a friend of mine has the Sony 50mm f1.8 lens and she loves it. I'm pretty sure that it has stabilization built in. She says that the photos she takes with it come out way sharper than with the stock lens.

$149 @ BH

$200 @ amazon market place
I didn't understand that comment either. Even if it is cheaper, the difference in price would have to be significant enough that you come out ahead in the end factoring in customs.
