    Good choice. Are you getting the older version or the new art version. I had a chance to handle the new version last night and - assuming they are optically identical which seems to be the case - I prefer the older version. The new one is too shiny and smooth in the construction for my tastes.

    I agree - good call. I almost the 19 as my unofficial "kit" lens when I got my NEX-7 last summer but I waited until they went down to half price this winter. :)

    Half price, full price - it's hard to go wrong with these things. (I feel I've definitely already gotten my $200 worth in "keeper" shots from the 30mm I paid full price for.)
