Nice...even though f2.8 is not what I consider fast, those two Sigma lenses are a true bargain for $100 apiece.

Fred, nice color and detail on especially the first shot. Great pic for a 100 dollar lens.

I've been finding that I usually tend to change what I shoot according to what lens I happen to have, instead of considering the subject and getting out the "right" tool for the job. I've probably missed out on a lot of shots that way, but it's kind of fun too.

Anyhow, the 19 seems like a pretty good lens for "general purpose" type shooting. I imagine it'll be like the Panny 20 in that regard. I have to assume that the 1mm FOV difference isn't even noticeable. The big differences will probably be focus speed vs. lens speed.

Very good picture quality for a lens in this low price category.
