This lens is available for both 4/3 and Sony Nex mount cameras. It is an updated version of the very well regarded original Sigma 19mm. These new versions are called "Art" lenses and there is even a little chrome Art emblem on the barrel to signify this. The other visual clue is that the focusing ring is now smooth rather than serrated. I think it looks sort of clean and modern. In practice manual focusing takes only a tiny bit of a turn, and there is little resistance, so even if your hands are covered in Mobile 1, it does not present a problem to use.

And, speaking of the ring, one of the complaints about the original version was that the ring felt flimsy and if you gripped it at all it would distort and bind, a cheap feeling for sure. The hidden part of the update is a more robust use of materials and construction. The ring will flex if you give it a grunt, it does not have that Leica hydraulic smoothness to it, but it is fine and not cheap feeling at all.

Sigma has decided to emphasize quality design and construction, to move up and away from its sort of low-end reputation. Amazingly, It is actually Made in Japan by a family owned company. Sigma tests each and every one of these Art lenses, not just one out of a batch. This verifies that each copy will not be one of the "bad" ones that people often seem to think they have, no matter which brand. Their website is interesting and discusses this change of focus (!) It is a company worth watching now.

The lens hood reverses for storage, but that feature doesn't save much space.

What Sigma has not evidently done is to actually change the optical design of the lens. People debate this, but Sigma has evidently not yet made any claims about improved optical performance.

Great sharpness, color accuracy, and well built lens. Focus is quick on my Olympus E-PM1. I would highly recommend this in place of the 14-42mm lens that comes boxed with Olympus MFT cameras. That is not a bad lens, but this is much more impressive.

After seeing the image quality from the kit 16-55mm power zoom kit lens that came with my Sony A6000 I wanted something that had much sharper resolution corner to corner. This lens does the trick, with images that are crisp and detailed with nice color saturation. The Sony APS-C crop factor makes this a 29mm focal length which is really nice as an all around focal length. The lens doesn't have image stabilization but with the faster aperture I haven't really missed it. The lens feels well made and comes with a lens hood and even a nice case, neither of which I would expect for the price. I am not crazy about the focus ring as it can feel a bit slippery at times. Most of the time I am using AF anyway so I don't consider this a big negative. One surprise is that the lens does have a clunk when you move it around but it does go away when you mount it on the camera and turn the camera on and seems to just be the way the lens is designed.

Anything close to this image quality from Sony or Zeiss would cost me 5 or 6 times as much so I am thrilled with Sigma releasing this lens.

Note that I am an amateur photographer and have only owned a single M43 camera (EPL1) and a single lens (kit lens) until now.

This lens is about as large as the Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42 kit lens v1 (when not extended) that came with my EPL1. It came with a hood that seems to work well. The lens is heavier than the kit lens which is actually nice as it helps reduce shutter shock a little. Its a bit sharper than the kit lens and feels more solid. I'm still getting used to using a single focal length and framing by moving backwards and forwards instead of zooming, but its pretty fun. At this price point this lens is definitely worth picking up, its just fun to take pictures with.

Note the F2.8 aperture is not that much greater than the F3.5 from the kit lens. I may be able to drop my ISO down 1/2 stop but thats not really much in my opinion. I don't notice any benefit of the faster aperture when taking evening/night shots, but the bokeh in macro shots with the lens wide smooth and quite pleasant to view, much better than the kit lens.

One person noted it is very tight to install on camera. This is true, but just rub the metal mount with your finger tips a little bit and it makes installation much smoother (the little oil your fingertips generates really smooths things out).

Most reviews say this is the same as the older version but I'm glad to have the new one. Works great on my Sony VG20 video camera, very smooth AF and nearly silent.

At $199.00 I was expecting some mediocre lens, but was blown away by the built and clarity of this lens. I took identical picture with this lens and with my Sony 18-200mm lens (at 18mm length) and the color depth and clarity of the Sigma was near perfect..

Package comes with a lens hood and a very decent lens case.

Great budget lens for those who can't quite swing for a pricier pancake lens or the Olympus version. Very pleased with it thus far.
