I ordered one from amazon.com last week. Here is a review on the sigma 30mm:

Nice lens, so tempted to get this. Missed out on the Nex-5R :cry: still happy with my Nex-5 for now :confused: ... Good price with B&H.. recently bought my LX7 there and super fast shipping! Alternative is Henrys.ca Sigma Lens sale at $179.99 + taxes ($89 savings), keeping spending in Canada for a few more dollars.

Bought my 5R for $800 from Henry's, but it came with a 55-210 in addition to the 18-55. just wondering now if I should get this package and see if I can pick up a 55-210 for less than 270.

Keep it and enjoy, that's a great deal all around. However if you find the 55-210 for $270 or less let me know ;)

The Sigma 30mm is hands down the best lens for the NEX for the price. Its extremely sharp and often compared to the Zeiss 24mm which is about 8 times the price lol.

I'm actually selling mine right now. If anyone in Vancouver is interested I'm selling it for $150 (I ordered the 35mm).

I was thinking about this when I came back from the xmas trip. But the expensive price of Sony's 18-135mm all range len is the greatest turn off. I hate changing lens when I need to take a quick shot.

eventhough i spent $800 on my Nex-5, I am still quite happy with it. $529 for the 5R is a steal IMHO

Just print out your order invoice.. and take it to the returns desk they will give you back 70 dollars + 7 for the price match.. not bad for just checking RFD! You don't need to have received the shipment
Thanks for the tip, really appreciate it! Didn't know I could pricematch it also.

Too bad it's oos on BB and FS. Awesome price for 5R. Bought the 5N on ebay back in Aug (just a month or two before 5R released) with EVF for $687. Great lil camera. Not that I really needed 5R, but thx to mention in this post, I'll probably end up getting the sigma 30mm. Seems like a nice lens for price.

For the sigma 30mm, keep in mind that you'll lose the 10 year warranty if you get it from the states. Only 1 year international warranty and gentec (the Canadian distributor for sigma) will charge $50.

I got mine from bhphotovideo during black friday only for henry's to drop their price to $180+tax during boxing day. Oh well,... Can't win them all lol.
