Very nice lens for night photography

  • Excerpt: This lens was very sharp and easy to focus compared to the 16-50 kit lens for my Sony NEX5-T.The only drawback is it tends to show a lens flare when shooting a bright light like the sun or a bright moon.

Great lens but not for my style of shooting.

  • Summary: Beautiful lens with great quality but I never seem to use it. First of all it's an APS-C lens on a MFT mount so it is oversized. I also have never been a fan of so-called normal lenses since it rarely fits the way I see the scene.

  • Excerpt: The 19mm on a micro four thirds is about 38mm field of view in 35mm terms. Similar to the 35 lens I used on my Leica back in the film days. A great lens for most purposes. This lens focuses close, real close. Works fine and takes great images.

Sharp in the center

  • Excerpt: I wanted a prime at a good general-purpose focal length. It was between this and the panasonic 20mm f1.7, but the latter cost much more. I saw the Sigma used here at Adorama and got it. Very pleased with the service and product. The lens arrived a couple days early and is in excellent condition.
  • Pros: Good image quality
  • Cons: Kind Of Big For M43

  • Summary: I got one of these through Amazon warehouse. The one I received was missing both front and rear caps, Even though boxed correctly. The front element was covered in dust and fingerprints! I returned that one and got a "new" lens that is working just fine thank you.

Worth the money...

  • Summary: Aside from the rattling sound when this is attached to the camera and off (normal according to the various sources I have read), this lens focuses fast, is sharp and has very good color rendition. I took away 1 star because the focusing barrel is smooth.

Nice lens, good value.

  • Summary: It is a great lens for M4/3. Definitely worth the money. It is larger than I expected considering the size of the Panasonic 14mm. I don't give it 5 stars simply because I have mounted some of my old manual focus Nikon and Minolta lenses on the camera with adapter and they all out preform this lens...
