    Re: Which lens for christmas?

    As an all purpose lens, what do you guys think would be a better choice between these two:

    Sigma Normal 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM Autofocus Lens for Olympus Digital Cameras (Four Thirds System)

    or

    Sigma Zoom Super Wide Angle 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Macro Autofocus Lens for Olympus Digital Cameras (Four Thirds System)

    Neither of these are really "all purpose". All purpose would be something in the 24-85 or so range, not really a 30mm.. The 30 mm is a Landscape lens and the other is a Super Wide used for Landscapes and architecture. Don't get me wrong, they can be used for other stuff as well but I'm thinking they were built for those type of shots in mind.

    At least with a 24 - 85 on a non-full sensor camera, you'll actually get closer to 34 - 119 with the 24-85. That of couse is Nikon talk. You will have to see what's available for your camera. I think you'll be very disapointed with either of those lenses if you're looking for an "all around" lens. With a lens like this, you'll be able to take portraits, landscapes, and of course... your fish shots! Don't skimp on the lens. Get yourself a nice fast one. It will come in really handy in low light situations where a flash just won't do.

    The 18-50mm is the better for general use. With your sensor, the 50mm will shoot like a 75mm, which is plenty fine for all around use.

    I would get the 18-50mm.

    Agreed. Plenty long for 'portrait" style, and plenty wide for scenics.
