|secondclaw||Great deal, though with new versions of 19 and 30 available for pre-order I am going to wait. If sigma solved chromatic aberration in the 19, it would be worth extra expense. And new lenses sure look nice.|

Sigma 19mm + 30mm lens kit for Sony NEX E-mount system for $199
This front page deal is back on!
B&H is selling the Sigma 19mm + 30mm dual lens kit for the Sony NEX E-mount system for $199.
You can place orders now, but since the company is on vacation, they won't ship orders out until April 3rd.

FYI all, firmware update for Sony NEX is out.
Review and link to download. Not too bad of a time drain.

Another newbie question...
I played with both lenses but I am not sure if i should keep both of them.
30mm for portrait.
19mm for scenery
I am total new to these "prime" lenses....
somebody willing to give me a lesson?
Thanks in advance..

I have 18-55, 55-210, 19 and 30. I also shoot with Canon. And I tried Sony 16 for a day.
If you don't care about super sharpness then you'll be fine with just 18-55 and 55-210 - they are great for kit lenses and 18-55 works very well indoors. I think Sony 18-55 kit is better than Canon 18-55 kit that I also have.
For sharpness Sigma 30 and Sigma 19 are clearly ahead and they are my overall favorites as I mostly shoot outside. I prefer 30 if I can "fit" what I shoot. But for group portraits and general vacation shooting I'd rather use 19. 18-55 only goes on a camera for inside shots due to IS. By the way, I cannot say that 19 is much less sharp than 30 on a 16mp sensor, maybe it's a different story on Nex-7...
Sony 16 was way too soft against Sigma 19 for my taste.

I'm unsure about whether to get these lenses, and would appreciate any advice.
Here's my situation. I have a NEX-F3 on order, haven't even received it yet, with the Sony 16mm, 18-55mm and 55-210mm lenses. This will be my first ILC, and will be used by my wife and myself for general family and travel shooting. Neither of us can qualify as an "enthusiast" at this point. Our main motivation for going to an ILC is to get the image quality benefits that come with a larger sensor. We hope to learn more about photography, buf if I'm being honest, we'll probably be doing most shooting in auto mode initially. We probably aren't the type who will get joy out of carrying a whole bag full of lenses and choosing exactly the right one for each shot, at least not initially.
So are these Sigma lenses general-purpose enough for my kind of usage? If I did get them, would it make sense to keep both the Sony 16mm and the Sigma 19mm? Is the lack of stabilization on the 30mm a concern for hand-held shooting? Is the lack of in-camera correction for these lenses a big deal?
Thanks in advance for any info!
