    Recently I've added the Pany 14mm and now the Sigma 30mm to my EP5 kit. I really wasn't even thinking about the Sigma 30mm, but seeing one on the B&S forum for $100 (Old Version) I was willing to test it out. The 14/30/kit/40-150mm turns out to be a nice set of lenses. Hope to add the 7.5 & siggy 60 (or perhaps the rumored 90). But the 30 is incredibly sharp. The start up lag on my EP5 is less than a second, so it is acceptable. Here are two images at 5.6 (I did a 2.8, and within its DOF as sharp as at 5.6). One is full frame the other is a 100% crop - look at the detail on the bug, Not a macro lens but lots and lots of resolution, and even at the new price a lens that should be given consideration if you are on a budget.

    #1 - full frame

    I have a similar setup as yours. P14/Sigma30/Sigma60 on my EPL6. I have to say, these Sigma lenses are incredible.
