Default 2 Sigma prime lens pack for $199

I saw this deal earlier thinking that it is a pretty deal:

It's a sweet deal and if I hadn't just got a used Panasonic 20 just a few months ago I'd be all over it. As it is, I can't see having my four main lenses being 14mm, 19mm, 20mm, 30mm.

It is a sweet deal! Pretty much buy one and get the second free. I ordered one last night.

totally a sweet deal and I am very tempted, I do have 14/25/45 primes so I can see myself adding in the 19mm but the 30mm doesn't do anything for me, to long to be normal, not long enough for portraits. Maybe I can find someone to split a combo with me?

Yes, the 19mm comes with a lens hood as well as a lens case. The 30mm only comes with a lens case but no lens hood. If you can find someone to buy the 30mm, it will work good for you.

Default Splittin the Sigma Combo

Hello everyone,
New to the forum. New to photography actually. Anyway, I'm having a lot of fun with an E-PL1 (14-42 kit lens) and since I really don't know what is 'normal', a 30mm prime lens for half of $199.00 seems worth it for the learning curve alone. So, if you are still interested in splitting the combo, let me know how we can arrange things.

Hey welcome to the forums.

I actually struck a deal with someone on flickr, so thanks for the offer but I am already set.

"Normal" is what the old shool people (not me, haha) consider to be a normal field of view. From what I gather that's about 20-30ish on our cameras.

I think I'd rather add a little more and get the Panny f1.7, 20mm.
