The 30 is apparently not only one of the sharpest m4/3s lenses, it is also the fastest focusing and easiest of the AF lenses to focus. That said I rarely use mine :(

I don't use mine much either, and it doesn't make sense. It fills a gap in my set of lenses (between the 17mm with AF and my adapted lenses without it) yet is somehow a real "odd man out" in terms of focal length. Maybe I just need to push myself to grow with it.

I have a Vivitar 28/2 which is sharper than my kit lens (probably not sharper than the Siggy 30 though) and since that's f2 and built like a tank I usually grab that. Or the 12-32. Or the 14-42. Siggy 30 is only when I take shots for Ebay due to the AF.

Everyone is different. I found that the 30 was my main lens when I owned it. Took away almost all use from O45. Paired well with my 17/2.8 for two lens kit. Now my girlfriend is loving how the 30 pairs with her P20 (she doesn't own a 45).

The only reason I replaced my 30 was because I got in on the Henry's deal on O25's when they were $270 shipped to the US... couldn't resist such a deal and the O25 is a very nice lens!

I do kind of miss the 30 though... the slightly longer than normal FL was good for me to work with and the quality of the lens was very solid!

I love my Pany 14 & Sigma 30 "kit". With the Pany WA adapter, the 14 & 30, I have the perfect "in town kit". I bought the Sigma here for $100 used, and it is the most amazing inexpensive lens I've bought (comparable to my Tamron 90mm macro in price/performance). When I'm in the great outdoors I use my 14-42R/40-150 to keep lens changes down, but around town the 14/30 combination is a killer on my EP5. The slightly longer FL seems perfect along with the Pany 14 combo. If something happened to my 30 I'd buy anther one that day.

The sigma 30 pretty much lives on my em5, well it shares the spot with the sigma 60 ;) its a great lens for very little money! Although i wish they would make something like the 17-70 2.8 they have for aps-c. Its the only lens i miss from my old dslr kit...
